Cryptomnesia #5 with Aleczander Norton Featuring John Berryman and “Our Other”
16 December 2017
This episode explores the others that live and speak within us. The feature poet is John Berryman who frequently talks about Henry, Aleczander talks about Steve and the host talks about her Ella. John Berryman is best known for his collection of work called The Dream Songs, which is where we meet his beloved and hated Henry. He struggled with alcoholism most of his life, showed up to many interviews drunk, and eventually jumped off a bridge in Minneapolis in 1972 in the throes of winter. In this episode Alex (or Steve) probes the womb, while Ella flaunts her silence and her absurd aloofness. Many disruptive sounds can be found in this episode, wont you come inside?
