I think my ronka poetry form has, for me at least, left the nest. I have now crossed the 100 podcasts mark. I have done 80 of those so far in 2022 (which is Season 2). There are about 830 ronka poems on the website, so the podcast is still far behind though I do try to add poems from the archive once a week too.
There are almost 2400 followers of the site, which is a bigger audience than I have ever had at a poetry reading. The podcast doesn’t have a following like that. Then again, I don’t do much to promote it. I just imagine people will find it if they are searching for poetry on any of the platforms I have put them on. The most popular places to listen are Spotify, Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Anchor, and Google Podcasts. They are also on Pocket Casts, RadioPublic and Breaker.
If you haven’t tried the podcast versions of the poems, give one of those links a try. The programs only run for one to maybe three minutes, so it’s not a big time investment. I wasn’t sure if I would keep the poems going all this time – but I have kept it at least a weekly habit after my 365 poems practice in 2014. I’m not sure about the podcast – but I’ll keep at it until the end of 2022 at least and finish season 2.
