In this month’s episode, Jemma and Brandon talk with Jason-Allen Paisant, poet and Director of the Institute for Colonial and Post-Colonial Studies at the University of Leeds, and use the connection between writing and trees to discuss his poetry that engages with environmental concerns, time, and Black identity.
His first full length book of poems, Thinking with Trees, will be released June 2021.
