'My reading experience with poetry is that I'm in the presence of some...body and we're in that kind of potentially ... it might be that slightly late night kitchen table moment where you've sort of got through all the news and the stuff and you actually enter into where you really are, and what's going on, and what you really need to talk about.' Poet Fiona Bennett and Actor Michael Schaeffer talk with Jessica about how The Poetry Exchange began, why the poems are introduced as friends, and how the way we encounter poems can shape our experience of them. Fiona’s recommendations for the Audiobook Listening Challenge Rapture, by Carol Ann Duffy A Sleepwalk on the Severn, by Alice Oswald
