Anthony Febo--AKA "Febo"--brings poetry to life as a spoken word artist. He describes spoken word poetry as "poetry written with the intention to perform"--and his performances are deeply personal, emotional, and rich, with touches of signature humor. (He performs two amazing pieces in this episode.) Febo is not only an artist; he is also a teacher--so listeners get to be students, learning how to write and perform spoken word poems. Febo encourages his students to end their poems with hope--he always seeks to choose joy in the face of what is trying to break you.
There are also fun tidbits about Lin Manuel Miranda (Febo is a huge fan), rap, hip hop, and much more.
Poetry has never been so much fun.
