The sound of Povember

Not everyone who reads Sesquiotica may know that for the last year and more I’ve been record an audio version of every new word tasting and similar article I post.

So by the time I add it to the article, most subscribers have moved on. But it’s there, waiting for you to come back and listen to it whenever you want.

By the way, I record myself reading all my word tastings, including these poems. They’re usually up on the site (and on SoundCloud) by a week after, sometimes sooner, and they’re on Patreon for my patrons sooner than that.
