Wonderful way to ingest poetry

What we need now in our world is more caring, thoughtful people. Poets are such people. By their nature they examine their (and by extension, our) inner lives, and with immense generosity they give us the benefit of their well-honed mindful insights, delivered in beautiful phrases and cadences.

My only suggestion is, could you please make the entire archive available? I only learned of you recently and it seems I cannot have access to the first 161 episodes. Is there any way you can retrofit the library to make them available?

Whether you can or not, I’m very grateful for what you’ve already provided! Please don’t stop!
