The mission of Quintessential Listening: Poetry Online Radio is to provide a live format for emerging, mid-career, and established poets to showcase their work. Whether traditional poetry or spoken word, the show offers an online vehicle for artists to engage in critical dialogue and discussion about poetry.

Dr. Ingram is a retired university professor and social change activist. A Washington DC resident, he is committed to employing the arts, specifically poetry, to disseminate information and raise awareness about issues related to power, identity, and oppression. Known widely as the Counseling Poet (www.thecounselingpoet.com), he has gained an international reputation as a spoken word artist and performance poet. A 2015 Pushcart poetry prize nominee, he has traveled extensively, reciting his works and conducting workshops on building cultural competency and empathy skills through poetry and metaphor.

Upcoming Broadcasts

Susannah Kathleen Douglas hails from the beautiful twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. She is the last child of Merlin and Lloyd Douglas. At 44 years old, she is a divorced mother of two children, both of whom have challenged her to be the best version of herself. As a disciple of Jesus Christ, Susannah believes that the Bible is the best book ever written. An entrepreneur, Susannah's passion is connecting with people. Her desire is to see them fulfill the will of God for their lives and to walk in Authenticity. With a Diploma in Cosmetology, Susannah has helped to transform people from the inside, and out, believing that true Beauty radiates from within. After years of running away from the call to write, Susannah finally surrendered this aspect of her life to the Lord - writing had always been a passion but she never felt equipped or qualified to do so. In 2021, she signed up for a "Writing to Heal" class and with the support and encouragement from the class teacher, she began writing again, with purpose. Susannah's love for poetry was ignited. Something about poetry caused her to express her once silenced, suffocated feelings and gave her a new level of hope and fulfillment. Susannah began to write her books, hopefully soon to be published, and began to share her poetry with a few friends. She went deeper and wrote more with the support and encouragement received. Believing in God's timing, she knows He is orchestrating this season of her life by aligning her with the right people. For Susannah, the future is filled with the manifestation of all that God has promised with His Holy Spirit as her guide. She knows that when the time is right the Lord will allow all her books that HE has placed inside of her to be published.
