Good news, it’s almost weekend! The work week is coming to an end and you’ll finally have your “me” time. Have you already made plans for the weekend? If not, no problem at all. Besides, staying at home and not doing anything are considered a treat for most of us after a busy week at work.
I will be travelling for 18 days starting next week. That is why I want to get as much rest as I can this weekend. Every weekend, I usually just stay at home, read e-books, sleep, watch Netflix (or YouTube), and chill. However, this weekend, I want to try something different.
I was just surfing the net today and stumbled upon some podcasts that people love to listen to. I checked them one by one to see if I can find some that I might want to check out this weekend. I was looking for one that is relatable and easy to listen to. After minutes of searching, I found a podcast called Poems for People hosted by R.R. Noall. The podcast currently has over 10 episodes and each episode has decent length.
What piqued my interest was the fact that the host is a poet. To be honest, it’s the first time I stumbled upon a podcast that talks about poetry – particularly typewriter poetry. I used to write poems and short stories in my teenage years. I really want to do it again but I’m always busy at work. Not gonna lie, I had to google what “typewriter poetry” means as I’ve never heard of it before.
Rachel R. Noall, the podcast’s host, talk to people who have inspiring stories and writes poems for them using her typewriter. What amazed me about it is that she writes poems in real-time.
I knew that Poems for People is perfect for me because I love inspiring stories, poetry, relatable content, and writing. I listened to the first episode and absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to listen to all the other episodes while chilling on the couch on Saturday afternoon while having a cup of coffee or tea. Actually, I think this podcast is perfect for Sunday mornings, too!
If you are busy during the weekends, that’s not a problem. Each episode is less than 30 minutes long, so you may listen to it before going to sleep or while on commute to work. I already know that it will be a calm, genuine, and lovely part of my week. I do believe that we deserve to relax and be inspired from time to time in order to live a better life.
If you are interested, there are 2 ways to get access to the podcast: Apple Podcasts and Spotify. You may write a comment below this post to let me know your thoughts about it. It’s always a good idea to share thoughts with like-minded people. 🙂
