Arizona Public Radio host Tom Maxedon with Phoenix affiliate KJZZ caught up with PW Covington via cell phone from a hotel room in Houston, TX.

PW was in town for the Houston Poetry Fest, where he had been named a Juried Poet, and Tom spoke to him a little about life on the road as a traveling poet, for the "Word" podcast.

     PW Covington is the hope inside of all of us on our worst day.


  He is the quiet voice, screaming inside our soul that refuses to accept defeat, even when we must lose.


  He is the things we can only find after we have lost everything.
