More spoke word please audible

I’m always searching for spoken word poetry on audible and there is embarrassingly little. This is a welcome relief and a great collection intelligently curated by Doc Brown. More spoken word please.

Great selection of spoken word

This is a great collection of spoken word poems that has introduced me to several new talents. The production and hosting were great. Well done and more, please!
