Pythagoras: New episode, poem, & interview

Pythagoras: The Life & Times (new episode) Human Voices Wake Us

Tonight, I’m thrilled to read a poem that I began working on three years ago on the life, teachings, and mysticism of the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras (c. 570- c.495 BCE). I am also thrilled that the poem is being simultaneously published at The Basilisk Tree. Many thanks to its editor, Bryan Helton, for coordinating all of this with me.

In the same issue, Bryan Helton was also interviews me about the podcast, and about poetry. You can read it here.

Don’t forget to support Human Voices Wake Us on Substack, where you can also get our newsletter and other extras. You can also support the podcast by ordering any of my books: Notes from the Grid, To the House of the Sun, The Lonely Young & the Lonely Old, and Bone Antler Stone.

Any comments, or suggestions for readings I should make in later episodes, can be emailed to

    Really loved this one. There was a line about the name Pythagoras being just an interruption to the prudence they seek that was really lovely
