Tim & Daniel talk with Janaka Stucky, author of the poetry collection "The Truth is We are Perfect." The book was published by Third Man Books, a division of Third Man Records (http://thirdmanrecords.com/), which was founded by White Stripes band member, Jack White. He explains the influence music has on his writing, and has even created a playlist of songs that he recommends accompany his poems: http://www.largeheartedboy.com/blog/archive/2015/04/book_notes_jana.html (Songs from the playlist - Aéroport Évolution by Ô Paon and a selection from Earth's The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull - are heard in between segments and closing out the program) http://janakastucky.com/
Janaka reads 2 poems from his collection: "Recreating a Miraculous Object" (more insight at http://www.poetrysociety.org/psa/poetry/crossroads/own_words/Janaka_Stucky/) and "The Art of Loss is a Lost Art."
