Our first piece is a delightfully fulfilling transformation—not for the speaker, but for her grandmother. It’s called “Underage.” It was written by Jessica June Rowe and published in Atlas and Alice on April 8, 2021.
Our second piece merges the mythical with the mundane, and a unique supermarket find. It’s called “The Wishbone.” It was written by Sylvia Petter and published by Reflex Fiction on April 19, 2017.
Our final piece is about eggs. But it’s also not about eggs. Eggs are the lens through which we see the speaker’s trajectory, and the medium through which we see her change. It’s titled “The Way a Person Does One Thing is the Way They Do Everything: Eggs.” It was written by Lindsey Danis and published in (mac)ro(mic) on March 22, 2021.
Micro is edited and curated by Dylan Evers and produced and hosted by Drew Hawkins. Theme song is by Matt Ordes. Follow the show on Twitter at @podcastmicro.
