Podcast Love ♥

I want to share with you, Crafty Friends, my favorite podcasts. Do you listen or watch them? Many of the friends I’ve told them about tell me they’ve never experienced the wonderful podcast world. If you’re one of those – I’d like to enlighten you and share a few of my favorites to get you started. No need to thank me, I’m always happy to enable, um, I mean, share.

My podcast love all began with audio podcasts, which are like talk radio with really interesting, talented knitterly type folk. I’m not one of those people who can watch video and knit, so these are perfect knitting entertainment for me. I can happily make progress on my current project as I listen. The quality of these podcasts is just incredible. I’m continually amazed at the level of creativity involved.

  • Susan of Knitajourney is such a philosopher. Listening to her podcast is like reading an EB White essay. It’s human, intelligent and compelling.
  • Brenda of Cast On : this is one of the first podcasts I found and she cemented my love for a well done podcast. Her podcast is the most professional I’ve encountered with wonderful music and sound effects and has been around awhile, so if you haven’t listened there’s plenty of episodes to catch up on.
  • Gigi and Jasmin of The Knitmoregirls are a witty and chatty Mother/Daughter duo – an absolute joy to welcome into your earbuds. Carli and I can really relate.
  • Alana of Never Not Knitting creates a friendly, warm podcast that features knitter’s stories. Her intro song is not to be missed!
  • Nicole and Jenny of Stash and Burn are those girls you’d like to sit next to at knit night. They dish about yarn, patterns, and living and knitting in San Francisco.

My Video Podcast Shortlist:

Each time I see a new episode has updated in itunes, I’m so excited, it’s like I’m carrying a fun little secret – a gift yet to be opened within my ipad. I get a real kick out of seeing my video podcast friends and learning what they’ve been up to since I last saw them. I’ll admit, this is a wierd little world where the podcasters are your best friends that you know all about and recognise immediately, yet they don’t know you from Adam. Keep that in mind if you see them at a fiber event. An enthusiastic hug might seem completely right to you, but would likely be inappropriate to them. With that in mind, I’d like to introduce my BFF video podcast friends who don’t actually know me:

Check these out:

These are just a few of my favorites to get you started, but there’s dozens more I do listen to and enjoy.

I’d love it if you’d share your favorites with me!

      This week I started saving the video podcasts for time on the elliptical trainer. I can only watch them when I’m exercising. It’s doing wonders for my waistline! 😀 I got on it twice yesterday so I could finish watching one!

    I need to get into crafty podcasts, I always SAY I’m going to but never follow through! Your post will give me a good start though. I too, can’t really watch much while knitting but listening while I knit I can do! Thanks for sharing :)

    Thanks so much for the honorable mention and warm review of our podcast Stockinette Zombies! I am a faithful follower of your blog, and am proud to be named one of your video podcast BFFs. I hope to some day meet you at a fiber event and get that hug! My family is big on hugs. =o)

      I’m so surprised you follow our blog, Megan! Oh my goodness! I feel famous! Thanks for being such a super video podcast BFF. 😀 Because of you and Amy I now have to knit a Goodale…

    I love podcasts too. You have listed quite a few of my absolute favourites. Dramatic Knits is a video one which is quite good and Knitting Blooms too. Also Knitting In Circles is great as she podcasts with her hubby who is also a new knitter. Do you visit the knitting podcast list at all – knittingpodcasts.blogspot.com

    • Mom says

      Ooooo, Thanks Sue! Good info here. I’ve just recently subscribed to Dramatic Knits – but haven’t watched. Haven’t watched the others or seen the podcast list! Thanks so much for sharing – I’m in podcast nirvana! :-)

    I don’t listen to a lot of podcasts because I listen to a lot of audiobooks. Some time I should come back here and check out the ones you listed, though. Probably on a day when I can’t get to knitting group!

    • Mom says

      Absolutely Calophi! When I’m in Greece, away from friends and family, podcasters keep me company and it’s wonderful to have that touch of home. It is, actually sort of like going to knitting group! (I like audiobooks too!)

    Thanks so much for the shout out! The photo of me showing the stocking is cracking me up :) I’m going to add your blog to my list of ones to follow :)

    • Mom says

      You’re so welcome, Laura. I love your podcast, and the stocking too! 😀 …must try colorwork! Appreciate having another Crafty Friend follow us. Yay :-)
