Amy Kohn gave a very nice shout-out about the (as she put it) “Amy + Amy + Amy” podcast episode on her Facebook page. Thanks Amy!

The other Amy K., Ms. King of I’m the Man Who Loves You  poetry book fame — who also has a new book out: I Want to Make You Safe, so go check it out! — sent me the link to the video below, which documents the audio recording of “Robert Pollard’s Kind of Wrong,” featured in the last Papers for the Border episode.
