    One of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard. Of course I’m a big Andy Hedges and Henry Realbyrd fan.

    That pod cast with Henry Realbird is the best one yet. So good. So heart felt. I could listen to him all day. I have met him a few times at Elko, Crow Fair, and Miles City always interesting.

    It can't get any better than Hank Real Bird. He's a remarkable poet, a remarkable philosopher, and -- best of all -- a remarkable human being. Thanks, Mr. Hedges, for this podcast.

    A friend sent me this interview with Henry Realbird and I'm so glad she did. it was a gift of the spirit to listen to him. I am old now and came to writing poetry late in life. My younger granddaughter writes stories and I am going to tell her that Henry Realbird says a blank page is freedom. What a beautiful thought, what a good reason to love the blank page and fill it with whatever feels/dreams right to you. Thank you for this interview.
