Episode Description:

Welcome to John Rhodes’ San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast/TV Show, known as Mystic Babylon on the internet. It can be found at: http://mysticbabylon.podomatic.com Hi there. The first segment of my show is featuring Joan Gelfand. Marty Castleberg will muscially accompany her. In the second segment, host Clara Hsu will introduce Jeanne Lutpon. Joan Gelfand is one of the busiest poets I know. Today she will be instrumentally accompanied by Marty Castleberg, so we are in for a good show. Joan has many accolades, but her accolades that I thought most interesting are her work as President of The Women’s National Book Association, and her work with CPITS, which is short for California Poets in the Schools. Just to note: I have met numerous poets who have worked with CPITS including Robert Hass the one time poet laureate of the U.S. All the power to you, Joan.

In Clara Hsu's second segment of John Rhodes San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV, Clara will interview Jeanne Lupton.
An article in the San Francsisco Examiner said about Jeane Lupton:

Lupton enjoys writing Japanese tanka. Her chapbook, but then you danced with poems in this form, was published in 2007 by Raw Art Press. Lupton's distant cousin, Cather, once wrote that only great artists know how difficult it is to tell the truth. The East Bay poet takes Cather’s admonition to write as truthfully as possible to heart. "I like to invoke the spirits of my writing ancestors," Lupton says, "and I often feel them smiling down on me."

NOTE: IN THE MIDDLE END OF JEANNE LUPTON"S READING THERE ARE TWO SWEAR WORDS WHICH I MUFFLED WITH THE VOLUME CONTROL WHEN I EDITED. Use your own judgement for the time of day you want it to air.
