Texas Poets Podcast

This is the blog site for the Texas Poets Podcast. The Texas Poets Podcast (TPP) features Texas poets discussing the poetry of other Texas poets.

The TPP was created by poet, Terry Jude Miller, and is produced by another poet, Anne McCrady of Inspiritry.com. The host for the show is Dr. Stephen Souris.  Karla K. Morton, 2010 Texas Poet Laureate, is a special consultant to the TPP.

The show is recorded at KTCU on the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.

Anne McCrady has been a tremendous sponsor of the TPP.  Please visit Inspiritry.com to read the text of the poems that have been featured in our Texas Poets Podcast.
