If you like poetry, this is fantastic, because you can listen to famous poets talk about their works while also reading their pieces aloud–for free.

So instead of listening to Pandora or Itunes today, take a moment and try Berkeley Lunch poems out:
Joanne Kyger, author of God Never Dies, The Distressed Look, and Again.
Robin Blaser, author of The Holy Forest: Collected Poems of Robin Blaser
Jessica Fisher, author of Frail-Craft.
