Pádraig Ó Tuama: My name is Pádraig Ó Tuama, and season eight of Poetry Unbound is back. We’ve got poems about dung beetles and horses, coyotes and eagles and bears and monsters and, of course, ourselves. We’ve got poems about parents you fought with or ones you barely knew. Poems about new names or names that aren’t known. We’ve got translated poems and poems about culture and customs. We’ve got poems about water and breath and how those things remind us of mortality and morality. We’ve got erotic poems, poems about memories of the dead, and poems about nature.

Season eight starts on January 1st, New Year’s Day, 2024. There’ll be new episodes every Monday and Friday. You can follow us on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Accompany your life with poetry, and we’ll accompany you with Poetry Unbound season eight. Made for you with love from all of us at On Being.
