An audio anthology of treasured writings, read aloud by the writers themselves, hosted by Drew Miller.

    S1 E4: Pandemic Poetry

    S1 E4: Pandemic Poetry

    Wherein Malcolm Guite reads his "Quarantine Quatrains" poetry collection, Andrew Roycroft reads his "Grace Triptych," and Drew Miller shares the fourth Word of Befuddlement: "spoothe."

    Malcolm Guite and Andrew Roycroft both happen to be priests as well as poets. Malcolm has spent his quarantine in Cambridge, England, while Andrew has been hunkering down in Millisle, Northern Ireland. Both Malcolm and Andrew reference the idea of “distance,” of a “gap” that has stranded us from one another—yet at the same time, what they are offering us is precisely their voices, their breath, and in a way, their presence.

Can’t wait to start the journey!

I’m excited and ready to soak up whatever content comes through my feed.

Intro is even great

The great content in a podcast can be sabotaged if something is just slightly off.
Listening to The Molehill Podcast is easy on my ears. The music complements the content nicely and the intro is short and sweet.
I smile more now that I gave a listen. Thank you for this gift. I will be back for more.
