Something a little different, and wonderfully so. Perfectly catered and artistically expressed short episodes (12 to 30 minutes) make up the bulk of recent releases under the beautifully honest and heartfelt Poems For People.
Right from the offset, there’s a certain accessible purity and warmth to R.R Noall’s delivery and manner of hosting – this feels like it’s in a league of its own amidst today’s podcast world, and that realness and niche quality will hopefully take the show far.
Digging deep into all things writing – a writer’s creative process, poetry, the ups and the downs – there’s plenty here for the artists and songwriters as much as the poets, bloggers, teachers, and just about anyone with a passion for language and linguistic creativity.
A recent episode, Why I Started a Poetry Podcast, rightfully feels like a fine introduction to both the writer and the host at the heart of this podcast. The episode details Noall’s journey into writing, where things began, and how – the tools, the mindset. It’s not just the content though, nor this diary-like approach (clearly led by a genuine and passionate, articulate writer), it’s also the fine pairing of this calming ambient music and the host’s own intimate and gentle speaking style. That balance between openness, unwavering honesty, and the subtly intellectual framing of expressions and descriptions, makes for a truly unique listening experience – one that proves to be both calming and inspiring as you let it softly fill the room.
Beautiful, a stand-out podcast – straight from the heart, fascinating and deeply relevant for any and all writers and creatives looking to feel less isolated and a little more understood. The quietly complex places our minds wander through when writing are perfectly welcomed and embraced here. Absolutely worth spending time with.
Along with her typewriter, Noall brings along amazing people with even more inspiring stories. After their discussions, she’ll write a poem about their conversation in real-time, which the guest will read aloud.
