The Bottomline of Disabilities, NextWork, Provo Poetry
Tonight on the show, our featured #OpenMicActivist was poet Chris Atkin, an English teacher at American Fork High School who also advises the school's poetry club and slam team. Thanks to Provo Poetry for introducing us to Chris, the first of 5 poets they've arranged to visit RadioActive this week. Why? It's National Poetry Month!
