Music makes your heart sing. It can make you reflect, or take you to that special place again with only one note. In this month's podcast, we discuss the differences and similarities with music, lyrics and poetry. We chat with singer/songwriter Ainslie Wills as well as MC Zulu. Our segment producer Jessica Alice waxes lyrical on the subject of music and poetry and finally, as a very special treat, Nothing Rhymes' own Eliza Hull sings word of the day.
