In this super fun and wild episode, I chat with poet and editor Ted Dodson about:

  • poetry as daily spiritual practice

  • nurturing the metaphysical self with poetry

  • the importance of a creative community

  • writing through and about grief

  • our writing processes

  • books we love

  • our meandering recap of the 2010s

  • being promiscuous readers + writers

  • Georges Bataille for Scorpio Season

  • poetry as worldview
