Quilting and Podcast Listening

Hey Quilt Peeps!

I promised a list of what I have playing in the background–quilting and podcast listening.  Well, here they are and I’m adding more all the time so periodically I’ll update this list.  These are not quilt/craft podcasts for the most part.  Most are oriented to some area of arts and culture.  I’m not going to put any long descriptions–just a link so you can check these out yourself.

I use iTunes to subscribe to the podcasts so they are always updated.


  1. Some podcasts have ‘explicit’ ratings on a particular episode–that usually means some language unsuitable for children or others (like ME) who don’t like cursing, for example. However, usually these podcasts are adult and family friendly but use your discretion.  Episodes that may be offensive usually have a little red E in the description for that episode.
  2. I LOVE CANADA! So, some of the podcasts are very Canada oriented.  Nuff Said……

Q: The Podcast  Love the format–interviews, politics (very Canada oriented but interesting insights), arts and artists, writers.  I also discover new music that I owuld NEVER hear otherwise.  This host is one of the smartest I’ve heard–and he’s a musician and brings an artist’s sensibility to the show

    You should check out the up and coming craftyplanner.com podcast. Very thoughtful and “open” discussions about crafting but also about important issues in the crafting community.
