So I took the plunge and thought I'd start one up too. Why not? There doesn't seem to be any NZ or Australian quilting podcasters - I thought I'd get the ball rolling. Eventually I'd like to include interviews from NZ quilters, rundowns on exhibitions and shows, and magazine and book reviews. But for now, I'm figuring out how it all works so most content will be about what quilty things I'm up to.
Here are a few links to quilting podcasts I listen to:
American Patchwork and Quilting Radio.
Quilting...for the rest of us.
Quilt Cabana Corner.
Just type in quilt or quilting in iTunes podcast search box and you'll come up with several more. Or visit Nonnie's Quilting Dreams - she has a podcast too and the link takes you to a blog post where she lists all the active quilting podcasts she knows about.
Here's Lazy Daisy Quilts keeping me company on my in the studio.
What about other interesting podcasts?
Country Life - Radio New Zealand National.
This Way Up - Radio New Zealand National.
And the BBC have HEAPS of great podcasts.
These are all available on iTunes too, you just have to type in a relevant search term. You can subscribe to podcasts and when there is a new one released, it will pop up in whatever app or program you are using.
So what's my podcast? The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady of course ;) I've only released one episode so far. I didn't tell anyone about it as I wanted a couple of my friends to listen to it first and tell me whether it was listenable (is that a word?) or terrible! Apparently it's not too bad and so I am going to continue. I'm going to aim for a podcast once every one or two weeks - but I make no promises 'cause I know life has a habit of getting in the way.
Here's my link via Podbean and here's my link in iTunes. The iTunes is only just registered so it may be a little hard to find for a couple of days via searching.
Please leave me a comment either here or on the Podbean website to give me some feedback. And is there anything in particular you'd like to hear about?
