Meraki Radio—Perspectives: Alonna Shaw Talks Tidal Language

Alison B and I are on Meraki Radio KDRT 95.7FM!


“Meraki is a modern Greek word which means to put something of yourself into what you’re doing: passion, love, creativity, all the good stuff, and only the good stuff.”

On this episode of Meraki Radio: Perspectives, Alonna Shaw gives listeners a foray into her ecopoetry manuscript Tidal Language. She discusses her process for creating the project and we hear her read a few select poems. Alison B interjects her perspective as they ride the waves of Tidal Language. The poems dive into themes of consumerism, capitalism, ecology, and home.

Listen LIVE: The thirty-minute interview will air live June 23, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time; and replayed at 5:30 p.m. PDT on KDRT.org streaming and 95.7FM in Davis, California.
