(Minneapolis, MN) — Sometimes picking out a new podcast can feel like a commitment. You want to enjoy, but you feel like you are about to be asked for hours of time. Perhaps it’s time to consider “The Slowdown Show.” The Slowdown Show offers a quick thought and a short poem each weekday. Each show is around 5 minutes or less.
Description from the Slowdownshow.org website:
Host Ada Limón delivers a different way to see the world – through poetry. In just one turn of phrase, poetry can anchor us, or shift a moment, a day, or even a whole life. Join us for a poem and a moment of reflection in one short episode, every weekday. Produced by American Public Media in partnership with The Poetry Foundation. This project is also supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
You can listen to this podcast in a variety of ways. Find it on Apple and Google Podcasts as well as Amazon, iHeart, Spotify, and Tune-in. Find it on their website or subscribe to their email and it will be delivered to your inbox.
The Slowdown is produced in St Paul, Minnesota at the APM Studios.
