My radio commentary, “Observations from a Working Poet,” runs on community station KVMR-FM Nevada City, CA and airs
for three minutes every Thursday, closing out the News Hour at 6:25 p.m. Pacific Time.

The station calls the archived commentary “podcasts,” and you can find them here. Click on “Molly Fisk Essays,” which right now
is in the third line, center, but as with all things community radio, is subject to change.

I’ve written 472 essays since I began this gig in October, 2005, many of them collected in my small and excellent books:
Naming Your Teeth; Houston, We Have a Possum; Using Your Turn Signal Promotes World Peace; and Blow-Drying a Chicken.
(Available here.) They make very good presents, if you are searching for a present. I have never in my life produced this many of anything.
My friend Steve Sanfield once said, “And some of them are pretty good!” I will spare you my retort, as we aren’t supposed to speak ill of the dead.

This is the entrance to my front yard, in case you were doubting that I am an actual poet.
