I sat out on the patio of the Illini Union in Urbana, IL with Steve Davenport, who has published two collections of poetry that crackle with sparks that'll burn you, Uncontainable Noise and Overpass, as well as a non-fiction prose chapbook Murder on Gasoline Lake. He also writes fiction; we talked about his Black Guy/Bald Guy stories.

Dear Jim Sullivan,
I very much enjoyed your delightful conversation with Steve Davenport and would have rated the podcast 5 stars instead of 4 if the sound quality had been better.
Unfortunately, I had to turn the volume on my computer all the way up to catch every word. Even so, there were several times when your voices faded out. Please understand that I’m not complaining, just offering feedback that your webmaster or sound engineer might find useful.
Again, I enjoyed the podcast very much! Many thanks for making Poets’ Voices available.
All best wishes, –Clare MacQueen
Davenport’s HOT! And smart. And funny.Listen, is there a Steve Davenport action figure available? He’s a fabulous writer! Buy his books. And then get him to write more. He’s everybody’s “rough darling.” Great interview!
