Cloudy Day Art #70 – Interview with Robert G. Parent


This week’s poetry podcast is an interview with fellow poet and member Robert G. Parent of “” poetry podcast.

I asked Bob to share two poems:

  • One poem that is older, but you keep pulling out to reflect on.
  • One poem that you just wrote, but you’re not sure if you like it or not.

Listen in to hear what poems he chose and why he chose them.

We also talk about video podcasting, how he started podcasting, his unique style of writing, experimenting with poetry, and much more.

Bob is currently a contestant in with his video poem “The Judgment of TV”. So, make sure you head over to the Slam Idol website, view all six short videos, and cast your votes! (Simon also sent in a short promo message specifically for you the Cloudy Day Art listener. Thanks Simon!)

  1. Thanks Will, appreciate your gracious nod.

    Great site here, wish I’d thought of it šŸ˜‰

  2. You’re welcome, Robert.

    I really like what you’re doing with video and poetry.
    I wish I thought of THAT! šŸ™‚

  3. Hey Will and all,

    As I listened to the beginning of the interview, I noticed that I kept saying Audible, instead of Audioblog. Sorry, just wanted to correct that.


  4. PS,
    Hope your Christmas was a good one.

  5. Thanks for the correction, Bob.

    I had a great Christmas and Iā€™m looking forward to a great New Year!

    I hope you have the same.

  6. I found you first last summer when I was in a hotel room with wireless. I was working on a website and found listening to your podcasts a good way to keep going. I lost you after that – I was in the stone age with dial-up – but looked you up again once I got high speed.

    Keep it up!

    Your post actually reminded me to dig into your site again. Thanks!
