Episode Info:   Today’s episode is on poetry with Khairani Barokka, an Indonesian disabled writer, poet, and artist based in the UK. I’m not all that knowledgeable about poetry and Khairani helped me understand that poetry is all around us and that there’s something for everyone. Khairani will recite one of her poems and talk about her experiences as a co-editor for the anthology, Stairs and Whispers: D/deaf and Disabled Poets Write Back, published by Nine Arches Press.
