In this episode, we had the pleasure of talking again with poet, Julie Howd. 

Julie defines her term "Eco-Surrealism" in this episode, and we discuss the intersection of avant-garde poetry and the ever-pressing fight for the health of our planet. 

In this context, we discuss the work of Argentinian poet, Silvina Ocampo, specifically her selected poems published by NYRB.
