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.
This is a well-produced and delightful way to feature micro and flash fiction, along with the writers who create it. Each show is entertaining, and you get to meet so many new artists in a short amount of time. It’s a great format for this genre.
