This year's Rice Pudding Poetry Podcast kicks off with a harvest-themed show featuring New Hampshire poet Sam DeFlitch, author of the recently published Confluence (Broadstone Books 2021.) She is a National Poetry Series finalist and recipient of fellowships and awards from the Martha's Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing, The Massachusetts Poetry Festival, and the University of New Hampshire, where she completed her MFA. She lives in Portsmouth with her corgi, Moose.


She'll be joined by pianist Mike Effenberger, a recording and performing artist who received the Young Beacon in Jazz award from New School University in New York City, from which he graduated in 2005. Drawing on gospel, American minimalism, jazz, and 20th century music Mike plays throughout New England with a variety of bands. He plays nationally with Soggy Po' Boys, and appears on countless recordings from independent releases to larger labels.


Community Readers Nicole Benevenia, Rebecca Hennessy, Asher Littlefield and Jean Stevens will read published poems they've selected for the show's theme.
