In the acknowledgements of Cara Chamberlain’s recently published book of poetry, Lament of the Antichrist in a Secular World and Other Poems, she credits her husband Bernie Quetchenbach—who is also a writer—with saving her many embarrassments. Similarly, in Quetchenbach's newly-published book of essays, Accidental Gravity: Residents, Travelers, and the Landscape of Memory, he mentions gratitude to Chamberlain for her patience and support and for reading every word of the manuscript—including thousands that are no longer there. 

On this episode of Resounds: Arts and Culture on the High Plains, co-hosts Corby Skinner and Anna Paige talk to the couple about their literary household, the words in their lives, and the inspirations behind their newest works.
