Episode notes

 This week on the Penguin Podcast, Derek Owusu talks to playwright and poet, Yomi Sode.


Yomi joins us to discuss his debut poetry collection, Manorism.


Derek and Yomi also discuss the influence of Carravagio and the double standards of celebrating the art and the artist, the power of stillness to create reflection, how pop culture influences poetry, and cultural appropriation and the ways in which we perpetuate and endorse it.
