Set Me On Fire with Ella Risbridger

Regular guest and deep friend of the pod Ella Risbridger is back, but this time to talk about poetry! In her anthology SET ME ON FIRE, Ella gathers some of the best, weirdest, sexiest poetry that she could afford and dedicated it to MEEEE!!!!! We talk about our long and bitter arguments about poetry, why it's such a easy artform to hate, and how you can change your mind about it (especially if school has ruined it for you). We read some our favourites from the book, including Our Love Could Spoil Dinner by Emily Berry, Monica by Hera Lindsay Bird, Mr Darcy by Victoria Chang, Solitude by Franny Choi. It's a break from our usual format, but I think you'll like it!
