Listen to This: The Slowdown

Need a slight daily readjustment of your point of view? A moment to focus and meditate on something besides your to-do list?

We want to introduce you to The Slowdown. It's a podcast we love where every weekday, U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith delivers a different way to see the world -- through poetry. It is produced in partnership with the Library of Congress and the Poetry Foundation, and is very very good. Nora takes a few minutes to talk with Tracy K. Smith and to share with you a couple of examples of the show.
