Lynette talks with poet Ann Iverson. She’s a member of the Laurel Poetry Collective, and her newest book is Definite Space. Many of the poems in this collection describe the conflicted feelings of a mom watching her son called to the Iraq war.
In the second half of the show, we talk with Haifa Zangana, author of City of Widows: An Iraqi Woman’s Account of War and Resistance. Haifa Zangana is a weekly columnist for al-Quds newspaper and a commentator for The Guardian, Red Pepper, and al-Ahram Weekly. She lives in London.
From Gomo Park to Roots Ista Posse, from Dubcall to Muflon Dub Sound System, tonight’s show was stuffed with excellent new dubs… Starting out the show, and hit twice more later in the show, was the featured new EP Mutan Records vs. Robots (on Mutan:http://www.mutan.de).
