The Salish Sea

“The Salish Sea” is a poem that “afters” works by Walt Whitman and Langston Hughes. Matt and Alvin discuss the poem—which comes from our Skagit County Community Justice Center site—the Salish Sea, and other related topics.

Matt updates listeners about the release of UW’s first anthology, What No One Ever Tells You—just in time for the start of 2019!
