Corrupted’s recent  project, I Know That is Poetry,  is a series of audio shots where poets consider what makes a poem, and read a poem or excerpt by another poet which, for them, exemplifies it. Spend a fascinating five minutes with guests including Kathryn Maris, Aaron Kent, Chris McCabe, Jennifer Militello, Rishi Dastidar and Tamar Yoseloff.
