Hi, I'm Linda. The host of the Poetry Ponderings Podcast.

Thank you so much for being here.

I am excited to collaborate with writers around the globe in order to highlight their creativity and passion for poetry, prose, and verse.

The intention of the podcast is to provide a platform for published and unpublished writers in which interpretation, inspiration, and imagination can flourish. The pieces are vocalised by the writer and absorbed by the listeners in its raw, real and true form. The poem itself is left alone, rather than undergoing extensive analysis paralysis (there are plenty of other forums on the internet for that!). In my opinion, poetry has heavy stigmas attached and I aim to assist in unifying ourselves with our own creativity and flow.

Please join me on this journey and I do hope you thoroughly enjoy listening as much as I do.

Love Linda xx

Anne Fricke is a writer and co-creator of MEND podcast. MEND podcast was created out of the understanding that stories heal. It is through our stories that we learn compassion and understanding for each other, and for ourselves; thus we begin to weave those threads of connection.   You can find out more about her podcast here:


In this interview we discuss the need to keep writing and putting it out there, especially in times of political and society upheaval and resistance. Anne also explores her strong reaction that has entrenched her soul and the line that has touched and followed her. The power of one line that can create such a lasting impact. The importance of poetry for keeping sane and helping to sift through, understand and process a myriad of emotions.
