Last weekend I had the pleasure of sitting down in Atlanta with mutigenre literary entrepreneur Cliff Brooks. A distinguished poet and gentleman of the old school, he is also the founder of the Southern Collective Experience and Blue Mountain Review.

Among his more recent exploits is a public radio show called Dante’s Old South. Comprising literary interviews, poetry, philosophy, and music, it puts you in mind of a hyperliterate Prairie Home Companion. That is, before Keillor got rich, old, and in trouble. Listen to it here.
