Erica Mena (that’s me!) and special co-host Mike Schorsch talk with translator and poet Martha Collins about translation as political action, and translation of Vietnamese poetry. Martha is an amazing poet, my first translation workshop teacher, and big influence in my work and in my life. We recorded this last year (!) at AWP in Denver, and it was such a treat to get to talk with her about her work. This is one of my favorite podcasts to date, though I say that about all of them.
