The BBC has a great set of podcasts from Simon armitage.
Poet Laureate Simon Armitage is a former probation officer, DJ and poet celebrated for his witty and profound take on modern life.
He writes in the shed in his garden, and in this podcast he invites guests to join him to talk about life, language, the human voice, accents and the environment.
Currently translating The Owl and the Nightingale, a long middle English poem in which the two birds debate many things, Simon asks guests to help with the poem and also to distract him from it.
Guests include Kate Tempest, Guy Garvey, Lily Cole, Testament, Antony Gormley, Maxine Peake and Trinidadian Judge Melanie Plimmer.
