Welcome to Micro, a podcast for short but powerful writing. I’m your host, Drew Hawkins.
The Golden Girls and Batman, Sunday mornings and siblings, tyrannosaurs and teeth. This episode delivers pop culture familiarity and—maybe even more familiar—the unsettling tone of our time.
At under a minute, our first piece cracks like daybreak, flows like yolk, and brings us to the comfort of the kitchen. It’s called Ode to the “Golden Girls Before Sunday Service” and it was written by Rodrick Minor and published in Duende. Enjoy.

Our second piece invites us on a ride in a plastic car with Polly Pocket, and crescendoes with a perspective that isn’t plural, but definitely feels like it. It’s aptly named “Sisters” and it was written by Anna Cabe for matchbook. Enjoy.
