On May 23, Rajiv Mohabir cohosted a recap show of It's Lit (featuring writers to love and the music their work plays best around; the music is chosen by the writers themselves) and Rajiv also gave a special reading from his latest collection of poems titled _The Cowherd's Son_. This recording is an excerpt from the May 23 show that includes Rajiv's poetry and an interview with the author plus some really wonderful musical choices, including Bollywood music, chutney music, and a version of a song from Rajiv's grandmother that Rajiv performs. Enjoy!
