Hidden Brain is one of my favorite podcast. For the April 2022 National Poetry Month I have set myself the challenge of writing one or more found poems ripped from the pages of the Hidden Brain podcast with Shankar Vedantam.

Empathy Haiku, a Found Poem
strengths and weaknesses
sharing internal states, brain,
From the Nature Neuroscience Abstract: "The last decade has witnessed enormous growth in the neuroscience of empathy. Here, we survey research in this domain with an eye toward evaluating its strengths and weaknesses. First, we take stock of the notable progress made by early research in characterizing the neural systems supporting two empathic sub-processes: sharing others' internal states and explicitly considering those states. Second, we describe methodological and conceptual pitfalls into which this work has sometimes fallen, which can limit its validity. These include the use of relatively artificial stimuli that differ qualitatively from the social cues people typically encounter and a lack of focus on the relationship between brain activity and social behavior. Finally, we describe current research trends that are overcoming these pitfalls through simple but important adjustments in focus, and the future promise of empathy research if these trends continue and expand. - Zaki, J. and K. N. Ochsner (2012). "The neuroscience of empathy: progress, pitfalls and promise." Nat Neurosci 15(5): 675-680.

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
