Ep 52: Iszi Lawrence – World’s Worst Poet

Merry new year to one and all! For our first episode of 2018 we’ve donned berets, waxed our beards and grabbed the nearest set of tom-toms to share stories of the worst poets in history. Naturally, the king of bad poetry William McGonagall is heavily featured, but we also meet a the Canadian James McIntyre who was quite unreasonably obsessed with cheese and Theophilus Marzials, a man who heard about onomatopoeia once and clearly thought it was the only thing that ever mattered in poetry. We are joined by the erudite Iszi Lawrence – host of the tremendous Z List Dead List podcast and owner of her own tame poet, the marvellous Mr A F Harold.
