Whomst Among Us Dare Speak Ill of Poetry?

While April is National Poetry Month, it's also the time of year when some people whisper among themselves that the form is "really not for me". On this week's show we'll ask a couple of local wordsmiths how to make poetry more accessible.

And, as the ghost of William Shakespeare enjoys renewed interest every April, one local man gets down to brass tacks - was Shakespeare a plagiarist?

  •  You Asked, We Answered: What are the origins of Cat Alley? We talk to the developer of the idea for Cat Alley and the artists who brought it to life.
  • New Hampshire Firsts - An ongoing look at the remarkable achievements, incredible innovation, natural phenomenon, and events of national significance in the Granite State...and we're starting with the  storage product that changed the game: Tupperware
  • Overheard: A conversation to answer the question once and for all, "is poetry lame?"
