In their debut episode, Paul and Jordan talk to the unconventional, parliamentary poet laureate--with a penchant for expressing the taboo--and beloved English professor, George Elliot Clarke. With characteristic grace and humour, he shares insight on the value of teaching poetry as a "living tradition" and the most profound and, perhaps, difficult of all human experiences: love. George also discusses the legacy of racism in Canada and how institutions, like law enforcement, still have to change in order for there to be a truly just society.
