The wind is blowing in some exciting changes here at the TMR Podcast! We’re not ready to reveal everything just yet, but while you wait in breathless anticipation, please enjoy this wonderful interview with Heather Christle. One of our talented former interns, Delia Rainey, chatted with Heather over the summer, discussing her collection of poems, What is Amazing, her work with jubilat, and, quite appropriately, her telephone project, which celebrated the release of Heather’s 2011 collection, The Trees The Trees.
