Chapter 23: There's Also Some Hope in the World: A field recording from Atlanta's poetry scene

Tim and Ian left the bookstore and ventured out to Urban Grind in West Midtown to hear local poets perform before a live audience. In this episode, we learn what drives them to open mics, how they hope people will connect with their work, and what slam poetry is all about. Warning - NSFW!
