Charm

This is a warm space. And it’s full of lights. The conceit of this space is, it seems, to put the poem in the world. Not above it. The first minutes are about... life. The poem comes in only after the world is established. It’s worn not like a hat, but like something inward, held. A rib, a nerve, a bronchus.
You’ll feel every moment. It’s so... cool! The Slowdown is steady and radiantly wrought.

I love this podcast but...

The last two episodes have been cut off at less than a minute. Please fix this editing problem!

Wonderful Poems and Host

Tracy K Smith does so much in a ~5 minute podcast. Not only does she bring great poems from a wide range of poets, but her anecdotes and introductions are delightful. I can’t recommend the Slowdown enough
