About Poets and Muses

Poets and Muses is an award-winning weekly poetry podcast, where the Host and Executive Producer, Imogen Arate (herself a prolific poet), chats with poets about their inspirations.  During each episode, two poems serve as the doorway into an exploration of diverse human experiences.  Since launching in December of 2018, Poets and Muses has featured more than 100 poets in the US and abroad, from those in their teens to octogenarians. 
In addition to showcasing an array of representative voices, Poets and Muses also aims to dispel misgivings and apprehension the listening public has toward poetry, as well as to inspire people to adopt poetry as a mode of self expression. While Poets and Muses is mainly conducted in English, the podcast also features poems written in other languages.
