The Prickly Pear Podcast
Earlier this spring, we snagged an interview with Robert Lashley, an exceptionally lyrical and achingly honest poet. Originally from Hilltop, Tacoma, Robert is a Jack Straw Fellow, Artist Trust Fellow, and nominee for a Stranger Genius Award. He joined us for a cathartic and open conversation about authenticity in art, the manifestation of grief, and the weight of public shaming. We also dived into respectability politics, gentrification and heritage, and were fortunate that Robert shared his poetry with us throughout the conversation.
