One of the best listens!
Sometimes I’m not sure what I wanted to listen to, and that’s when I check in with micro! Every episode has at least one piece I love. Thank for sharing such great pieces!
Love this format!
Micro is one of my new favorite podcasts! I love that authors and poets are reading their own work, and that I get introduced to brand new stories I wouldn’t have heard otherwise. Plus the format is so accessible! Appreciate how bite sized it is.
Bite sized stories!
When I don’t have time for an audiobook or a long podcast, this show is the perfect answer. Each episode is the perfect dog-walk-length and the variety & diversity of stories and writers is perfection.
