WELCOME TO THE POETRY SHOW - A WEEKLY PODCAST THAT TRANSFORMS THAT THING YOU HATED AT SCHOOL INTO SOMETHING EXCITING, INTERESTING AND RELATABLE.

Each week the panel brings sharp discussion and bespoke verse to attack themes ranging from the humorous to the deeply uncomfortable.

Hosted by activist/archaeologist Rose Drew with lyrical Alan Gillott, heartfelt Charli Goodfellow and rapper Laurence O'Reilly.

Funny yet poignant, warm yet brutal and most importantly: not what you learned in school.
