HIATUS (GWP Earpetizer)

In this short earpetizer, host Lynn Hickernell discusses the word, "hiatus" with a "Say What?!?" segment juxtaposing the phrases, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder," and "Out of sight, out of mind." Also includes a specifically hiatus-related encore edition of "GET IT?!?!?" and actor Kwana Martinez presenting Lola Ridge's poem, "Interim."

"Interim" by Lola Ridge 

(background music:  "Reflections" by MK2 - YouTube Audio Library) 

The earth is motionless  
And poised in space...  
A great bird resting in its flight  
Between the alleys of the stars.  
It is the wind's hour off....  
The wind has nestled down among the corn....  
The two speak privately together,  
Awaiting the whirr of wings.
