On this week’s episode of Homestyle, my co-host Leigh Guidry and I interviewed Alex “Poetic Soul” Johnson, a local poet in south Louisiana who does spoken word poetry and focuses her words on community issues, particularly black community issues. Along with her spoken word poetry, Johnson has written a book and worked on murals in the community, and has worked for social change. Her perspective is an interesting one, and well worth a listen.

The Homestyle Podcast is a joint venture between myself and one of my best friends, education reporter Leigh Guidry. Throughout each episode, we discuss cooking, crafting, and other hobbies as well as how we make sure to spend time with our families despite how insanely busy life can be. The goal of the podcast has always been to take a moment to focus on what’s really important because, at the end of the day, family and life is more important than whatever distractions are going on in the world around us.
