Bob Holman's YouTube channel is home to a growing archive from the 1980s to now.

"Slammin: The Sport of Spoken Word" (1990) features poets Cheryl B, Evert Eden, David Mills, and Susan Ross.

"Words In Your Face" (1991) features Henry Rollins, Maggie Estep, John Leguizamo, John S. Hall, Muta Baruka, Deacon Lunchbox, and Bob himself.

Available on Holman's channel are all 55 New York Emmy award winning " Poetry Spots," produced by Holman between 1987 and 1993 for New York's WNYC-TV. Foreshadowing the technique used in “The United States of Poetry,” each “Poetry Spot” is a short film built around a single poet's performance of a single poem.
