Frank Skinner’s Poetry Podcast returns for a sixth series

Fresh from receiving an MBE for services to entertainment, Frank Skinner is back with a brand-new series of his acclaimed Poetry Podcast. The series, which launches with episode one today (Wednesday 8th February 2023), is focused on the work of poet laureates.

Across 8 episodes, expect to be inspired and entertained with pieces from the likes of Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage, Ted Hughes and American Poet Laureate, Ada Limon.

You’ll be craving your weekly dose of poetry perfection as Frank takes you on a journey through his selection of chosen works – each an opportunity to discover something new and to hear about Frank’s personal relationship to a piece.

Frank Skinner said, “Bursting with enthusiasm for my new series. This time: poems that discuss why a naked man threatened firefighters with their own hose-nozzles, why we are all carrying an invisible ladder and why writing a poem is a bit like a really smelly fox crossing a snow-covered field. I love this podcast.”

So, join Frank each week, with episode 1 launching today. There may be laughter. There may be tears. There will certainly be poetry.
