WGTE Public Media airs ‘The Slowdown’


TOLEDO: WGTE Public Media is broadcasting the podcast The Slowdown to public radio listeners, beginning January 14, 2019. Hosted by U.S. Poet Laureate Tracy K. Smith and produced by American Public Media (APM), The Slowdown has been bringing the power of poetry to listeners across the globe as a weekday podcast since its launch in November 2018.


The radio feature of The Slowdown will present the same five-minute program, encouraging listeners to make a daily space for poetry in an increasingly busy and chaotic world. The Slowdown will air Monday, January 14 at 9 a.m. and is made possible through funding by the Poetry Foundation, a national independent literary organization and publisher of Poetry magazine, and the support of the Library of Congress, which appoints the nation’s poet laureate.

Ms. Smith, a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, is serving her second year as the nation’s 22nd poet laureate. In this role, she has focused on connecting with rural areas by visiting states across the country through her project “American Conversations: Celebrating Poems in Rural Communities.” Ms. Smith aims to spark conversations that prove poetry helps readers and listeners slow down, think more passionately and deeply, and see the world through the eyes of others.

Previous episodes of The Slowdown can be heard by visiting slowdownshow.org.
