Literature for the Halibut is BACK with a terrific episode on some of our favorite themes: collaboration, badass publishers, breathtaking poetry and what happens when two genres collide.

Ann & Nicky talk to two literary editors, Dusty Freund from Natural Bridge and Jessica Rogen from Boulevard. The two have joined forces to present a party and reading that celebrate their magazines' spring issues. Jessica & Dusty talk about their collaboration, print vs. digital and what it's like to meet readers face-to-face. Midway through, the group is joined by National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize finalist Adrian Matejka. Adrian reads his poem, "Famous Negro Athletes," published in the latest issue of Boulevard. He tells us about writing a script for a new graphic novel based on the life of boxer Jack Johnson. The graphic novel is a continuation of Adrian's book of poems, The Big Smoke & we are dying to read it.
