The Rain Dogs Shuffle begins in earnest as Ross Sutherland joins Martin and Sam to discuss the poetic stylings of 9th & Hennepin. The spontaneity of performance in songs and poetry, as well as the nature of social interaction on public transport feature in the conversation, along with the perspectives of writers on the internal and external lives of their subjects.
Please note that the text of the Berman poems can be found in the YouTube description linked below.
