In this episode JM and Shawn get lost in a discussion about Internet Poetry, and along the way they end up sounding like bitter grumpy old men (sorry, Steve Roggenbuck!). On their journey they discuss MTV Movies, JM rants about long walks in Middle-earth, and they make plans for the end of the world.


Destination: Detour is a Poetry Podcasting Project set to be posted will be posted weekly on this youtube channel. It’s about everything poetry related.

Our purpose is to get lost on purpose. We will do everything – from reviews, showcases, and critiques to meandering discussions about genre, theme, and the writing process. We even plan on reaching out and collaborating on community projects with the audience. Everything is in the air and on the table.

Find out more about us at and on facebook at
