Hannah Jane Walker is a poet, broadcaster and playwright. Her work is concerned with the difficult uplifting moments we face in the process of being a person, things overlooked within ourselves that might be potential resource. She makes theatre that uses poetry as a way of talking. As a performance poet, she has gigged in theatres, bars, boats, festivals. Recently she has begun working in broadcasting, with BBC Radio 4 and now with her own theatre poetry podcast Human Resources.

Her poetry is published in many places.

Cal Wensley writes on the death of their father with all of the intensity of someone who doesn't want to admit that their father is dead. To some it might sound like they treat death as a joke and they're right.

Cal tackles sensitive issues with a lack of sensitivity and a whole lot of humanity.

Hosted by local poet, musician, and unrepentant geek: Fay Roberts
