Ep. 22 5/23/17 RECAP feat. Lia Barcinas, Aiko Yamashiro, Joseph Han + live with Rajiv Mohabir

This week's episode of It's Lit, featuring writers to love and the music their work plays best around, includes
--Aiko Yamashiro + Lia Maria Barcinas (from ep. 13), who collaborated on a decolonial love letter/poem/experiment in weaving that connects across Oceania from Guahan to Okinawa to Hawaiʻi through a love of plants,
--Joseph Han (from ep. 14), who offers a poignant poem about his late grandfather in "Ode to the Stroke that Took Half," and
--a bonus on-air reading and interview with Rajiv Mohabir regarding his latest book of poetry, The Cowherd's Son (Tupelo Press, 2017). Rajiv discusses what influences his award-winning poetry, how he structured The Cowherd's Son, the importance of postcolonial identity and writing today, and--as we always ask folks who are guests on the show--why Lit?

This episode includes everything from Chutney music to Okinawan music and music from Guahan to folksy music and throwback and contemporary hip hop coming out of the US.
