Texts For Nothing: Conversations with Poets
By Antonio Ochoa
The premise of the show is to have a relaxed and informal conversation with poets about their work and interests. I imagine Texts For Nothing as the opposite of an academic or scholarly pursuit, and by that I mean just two people talking about things they find important and meaningful. Being an expert on something is not a requirement, rather I would like to emphasize in this show that curiosity and imagination are more important than erudition.

Episode 2.2 Kristen Case
In this episode I had the opportunity to speak with Kristen Case. She is the author of two books of poems “Little Arias” and “Principles of Economics” and has a new manuscript “Daphne” looking for a home. An editor and a professor of English at the university of Maine, she wrote a fascinating book on the connections between philosophy and poetry called “American Pragmatism and Poetic Practice”
