215 | Lee Herrick

Today’s guest is the exceptional poet Lee Herrick. If you haven’t read any of Lee’s work, today is the day to make a purchase at your favourite bookstore! Lee is a Korean adoptee and shares how he found out later in life he was born in a completely different city than he was told. We discuss poetry as a social critique, surviving feelings of deep despair, and how writing poetry and finding the adoptee community has been such a gift.
