The Habit Podcast: Marilyn McEntyre

The Habit Podcast is a series of conversations with writers about writing, hosted by Jonathan Rogers. This week, Jonathan Rogers talks with Marilyn McEntyre, author of Speaking Peace in a Climate of Conflict.

In this episode, Jonathan and Marilyn talk about the rich etymological depth of the word “conversation” and its connection to “dwelling with,” the lost art of visiting, the transactional nature of conversation in a capitalist world, poetry’s abiding danger to the status quo, and the recovery of metaphor.
