Spoils of Akron Podcast


Episode 90 - What Rhymes With Akron?

May 22, 2017

Like a stream-of-consciousness verse, Akron’s poetry scene is steadily growing and taking shape, and Shane and Chris speak with three of the scene’s promising poets: Noor Hindi, Yoly and Mike Krutel. Yoly and Noor talk about the Poetry in Akron series, which enables local writers to perform their poems and spoken word, and Mike is one of the founders of the Big Big Mess Reading Series, which takes place monthly at Annabell’s. All three of the poets do a live reading, and Shane also busts out her poetry skills with an Akron-centric lyric (with promises of a Spoils of Akron rap in the near future).
