A feel good podcast

I love this inspiring podcast where i can catch a glimpse of personal journeys of creative people of Netherlands’ (and not only) spoken word scene. Personally I find it very interesting to hear how different people see the world and reflect it through spoken world. It is great that the speaker of every episode also lets us hear their poem. Looking forward to the new episodes!

Get the word on Amsterdam

A remarkable inside look into the exciting spoken word scene in Amsterdam. Edgy and profound, this podcast is a personal introduction to the dynamic poetic world of International wordsmiths who drop their rhymes and rhyme their reason in the spoken word spaces of this wonderful city. If you like this - you’d love WordUp meet ups. Look them up on social media!
