Speaking of poetry recordings, does anyone have any podcasts about poetry or word nerdery they'd recommend?

I've really been enjoying Helen Zaltzman's biweekly etymology podcast The Allusionist; if you're interested in checking it out, episode 7: Mountweazel is one of my favorites so far.
You'd think you could trust dictionaries, but it turns out, they are riddled with LIES.

Delivering this upsetting news is Eley Williams, who is just finishing up her PhD about mountweazels, esquivalience and other hoax words that lexicographers have snuck into dictionaries.
