Nicholas Barron:

Did you hear about the time that writers Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs got caught up in a murder investigation?

Or that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous poem, “The Song of Hiawatha,” was inspired by the writings of a Native American woman?

Hi, I’m Nicholas Barron. And these are the kinds of stories I tell on my podcast, Bidwell Hollow.

Among all of the writers and poets who’ve ever lived, there’s one thing each of them has in common: They’re all people.

And people lead lives that are filled with decisions, coincidences, and occurrences. Lives that are peppered with trials and tribulations, achievements and disappointments, outcomes both planned and unexpected.

This is true for you and me. And it’s true for every writer and poet who’s ever lived.

Indeed, behind the work of these literary artists are true, little-known stories about their lives and art.

That’s what the Bidwell Hollow Podcast is about.

Each episode, I tell you true tales about the people behind the words you’ve read and loved.

You can listen to Bidwell Hollow wherever you prefer to listen to podcasts.

And be sure to subscribe to the Bidwell Hollow newsletter, which brings you hand-picked poems, news about books, and author and poet interviews.
