Not only is Mochila Chat a “gift to your ears,” now we’re bringing you a whole episode on gifts! This is also the episode in which we welcome our new co-host Cameron Pike, taking the place of Lindsey Lucas who has graduated (congrats, Lindsey!). Cameron and Chris Pankiewicz discuss well-meaning but strange gifts, the gift of language, and war-time gifts. Hear Jane Huffman’s poem “Letter to My Alchemist” from our 2015 issue alongside Walt Whitman’s “O Tan-Faced Prairie Boy.” New traveling co-host Cameron Price stops by Louisiana State University’s MFA program…well, he pretends to anyway!
