Episode 5

A Better Me

As this is the first episode of Poet X in 2017, we felt it only right that we reflect on the year that was past and recollect lessons we've learnt along the way. We know at times, memories can be difficult to understand and are rarely insightful.

However, it is often up to us to extract its meaning and apply its true lessons for the benefit of the future. We entreat you to tune in as we travel through history on the path of poetry.

In this fifth episode of Poet X, we feature three poets journeying through time and past ponderings in search of answers for the future.

Featured this episode:
1) 'Tentang Semalam' by Tulangkata
2) 'I Am A Sinner' by Qaisara Idrus
3) 'Merdeka' by Sheena Baharudin

Poet X #04 - Used and Abused

Episode 4

Used and Abused

Nowadays, every time we watch the news or scroll through our Facebook newsfeed, we find news of abuse. Abuse takes on many forms in today's world and often floods headlines depending on the gravity of the offense. But reporting often stops here.

One has to ask:
Is knowing about the abuse when it happened enough? Especially when the pain and trauma lingers on with the victim for years.

Our episode today moves away from the crime of the abuse and instead focuses on the impact it leaves on victims.

In this fourth episode of Poet X, we delve into the souls of the used and abused and peer into the hidden cracks we thought time healed.

Featured this episode:
1) 'Bundle Shopping' by Qaisara Idrus
2) 'Clean' by Nadia
3) 'Whore' by Azam Rais

The Love We Lost

Everyone has experienced loss in their lives.
There are the little losses - the ones you cry about and get over. These are the ones time will heal. The ones you will forget.

Then, there are the big losses. These are the ones you will never get over. The ones you will always remember. The ones that hurt you so much you write poetry.

In this second episode of Poet X, we explore how the loss of love has affected our poets.
We are proud to present you 3 featured poets to shed light on their personal experiences around this theme.

Featured this episode:
1. 'Fingertips' by Arisha Rozaidee
2. 'Question Marks' by Arisha Rozaidee
3. 'Not A Bad Breakup' by Nadia
4. 'A Poem About Loss' by Jamal Raslan

Episode 28

Imagine watching the next potential Malaysian PM duking it out (oral-style) with the Opposition leader on huge live televised event? Does the idea excite or scare you? The recent Presidential Debates going on with Trump and Hillary made us think, would something similar work here in Malaysia? What would be the benefits? The potential risk? This week Aiman, Aiman, Darimi and special guest host Afifah clashed their ideas and debated on whether or not would these debate work.

Enjoy the episode!
