LIL #2: How Do Weed? (Tulips, Plath)

We mostly talked about Sylvia Plath and her poem “Tulips.” There’ll be tangents on orange chicken, Abby’s rad drawing skillz, how many grams are in a pound, and fishing.


Special thank you to Alex “Bones” Niederberger for the use of our theme song, “Lit is Lit is Lit.” This episode was written and performed by HR Bumgarner and Abby Scadden. It was edited by Julie Tran and Will Robertson. The logo was created by Will Robertson. Special thank you to the Mass Communications & Journalism Building at the University of Denver for the use of their facilities and equipment.
