This week, we talk to Matthew Landrum. He's a poet and translator and he's been translating the work of a Faroese poet over the past year. We'll talk about poetry, the Faroe Islands, and someone will even get to say, "You've been here before, laser hair!"

Then we'll travel to a cemetery to contemplate our own mortality.
