Listen to the Haiku Chronicles, a series of podcasts by poets Alan Pizzarelli and Donna Beaver. The goal of this series is to “. . . provide a better understanding and appreciation of the art of Haiku and its related forms including senryu, renku, tanka, haibun and haiga.” The best of these podcasts sound like an informal conversation among good poets such as Alan, Donna, Cor van den Heuvel, Emiko Miyashita, Bruce Kennedy, and others.
