One response to “#003 – Dorothea Lasky

  1. Hearing Dorothea’s voice made her poetry so much more alive – even though (maybe because?) she reads (deliberately) monotonously. Her reading reminds of ancient Latin verses, which made sense to me after I read she has a B.A. in Classics. I loved this podcast, thanks so much, and best wishes, Dorothea!
