Say “I do” to this episode by hitting play! Here co-hosts Chris Pankiewicz and Cameron Pike discuss the intersections of writing and marriage, kicking it off with a poem by Morgan Boyle, “Ode to that Man on 12th and P who Simply Must Heckle Every Woman who Walks Past,” from our 2015 issue. Then we listen to Edward Thomas’s poem “The Cherry Tree” while the co-hosts ask themselves, how has the institution of marriage changed over time? Why take the plunge at all? Could marriage possibly be like writing, in that you’re not ready to commit to a subject (or person) until the right one comes along? Finally, traveling correspondent Cameron Price gives us the 411 on the University of South Carolina’s Master’s of Fine Arts program.
