Podcast: Visual Sound with Tom Cassidy
This week's podcast is a real treat! This past Saturday, Tom Cassidy performed Visual Sound along with four other poets for a crowd at Light Grey Art Lab. It was an amazing performance, a dense rollercoaster of language, full of clever humor, beautiful poetry, and whip-smart commentary! It's hard to sum it up, so please have a listen! You'll see what we mean!
