Every other Tuesday, we’re bringing you readings and interviews with the authors published in the Alien-themed Issue 6 of the FU Review.

This week, on a podcast where there’s no room for modesty, host Kelsie Renehan sits down with Best Poet Ever, Luke Swenson, who would definitely go to Mars. They talk dead Germans, best practices for translation, Battlestar Galactica, and poems that aren’t poems anymore. Luke reads two original poems and two translations (and their German originals!). Kelsie reveals she only knows one language, doesn’t know how to play chess, and is very, very afraid of outer space.
We're so happy to bring you a little literature in a sweet twenty-minute package for the reader on the move, thanks to The FU Review and Bear Radio. And as always, big thanks to Hindenburg for their support.
