John talks with Mayra A. Rodríguez Castro, a poet, writer and editor about life in Berlin - and other cities, the life and work of Audre Lorde and the book by Lorde which Castro edited in 2020, Dreams of Europe. Other topics include archives and the curiosity they encourage, the universal vs the particular, the poetic impulse and a really fun rapid-fire-question round!
