Ireland’s man in Washington, Ambassador Daniel Mulhall, talks us through the rhyme and reason of poetry – and how literature can act as a cultural bridge. He practises what he preaches by tweeting daily poems.
Also in this episode, Professor Chris Morash of Trinity College Dublin discusses who’s in the shakeup for a valued and valuable award: the Dublin International Literature Prize worth €100,000.
