Abolishing the Death Penalty (half)

From With Good Reason | Part of the With Good Reason: Weekly Half Hour Long Episodes series | 29:00


Earlier this year, Virginia made headlines when it became the latest state to abolish the death penalty. Sabrina Butler-Smith is the first woman to be exonerated from death row. She says she’s living, breathing proof of why the capital punishment should be a thing of the past. Also: Deirdre Enright is probably best known for her work as the founding director of the Innocence Project and her passionate voice on the first season of the hit podcast, Serial. But before all that, she spent decades as a capital defense lawyer. She says she attended one of her clients’ executions and it changed her life forever.

Most recent piece in this series:

The Write Question - Mara Panich

From KUFM - Montana Public Radio | Part of the The Write Question series | 29:00

Cover_small About the book:

What is the calculus of the body when it is the site of ruin, a receptacle for pain and conditional pleasure? These intricacies are laid bare in Mara Panich’s debut collection “Blood is Not the Water,” with such fierce candor and raw intimacy, there is an instant human connection. Weaving a tapestry of vulnerability and personal truths, Panich chronicles the connective tissue of trauma, longing, ache, cruelty, exclusion––all orbiting, like many of us, marbled forms of love. “This body has become memorabilia of a disappearance, the flutter of a dove,/pulled from my heart/by a mediocre showman,” yet every alloy of devastation is rendered whole, not through the lens of lack or desolation, but with resilience and wisdom from lived experience by a transcendent soul. These poems bring to light that the smallest acts of self-love are radical and that beauty is truly only skin deep.

- Su Hwang, author of Bodega (Milkweed Editions, 2019)

In Mara Panich’s Blood is Not the Water, to be alive and in a body is an act of redemption. With a hard-won certainty, Panich’s steady voice leads us through desire and grief, wit and anger, and out the other side. These poems claim their space on the page. Even in domestic moments, there is something animal and brazen here: ‘I like to hold a warm cup and I like to stay unafraid.’ Reading Blood is Not the Water is like being told something important in a quiet room—not a secret, not a confession, but truth. Indeed, Panich makes even the hardest truths simple. ‘Light lightens burden,’ she writes. Let these poems share with you the weight of what you carry.”

- Alicia Mountain, author of High Ground Coward (University of Iowa Press, 2018)

About the author:

Mara Panich-Crouch is a writer, artist, and the owner of Fact and Fiction Books in Missoula, Montana. She holds a BA in Creative Writing and English Literature from Purdue University and completed post-graduate studies at the University of Montana. Her work has been published in Cutbank Online, The Bitchin' Kitsch, Awake in the World, Women Under Scrutiny, We Leave the Fowers Where They Are, and other anthologies.
