Ep 35. Corey Wakeling: Having fun with the ANZAC

Two larrikins asking what you’re into, Merlions toasting at your table, a pig showing off – Australia is pretty hilarious when you think about it…

I’m so grateful to Corey Wakeling for walking me through the fantastic Michael Farrell poem ‘An Australian Comedy’ in this episode, which you can find in his 2015 collection Cocky’s Joy.

We also talk about another Farrell collection, Break Me Ouch, along with what it’s like to move away from your poetic community after finding your place, and Corey’s upcoming visit to Oz.
