Oh man… Guys I have a confession to make… I am a complete podcastaholic, and right now it’s all about The Yarn Thing Podcast with Marly Bird. I have been binging it all day while I work on orders and I have been so in love with each show I have listened to!
So, what’s a podcast? Well I initially thought a podcast was someone somehow using their iPod to broadcast music or something. Now I know that is so far from the truth! A podcast is a place for people to talk about what they love, what they’re passionate about, and just be who they are. They record themselves talking about whatever it is they like to talk about, then they post it up on iTunes or their own website. It’s a wonderful way to get to know a person and what makes them tick without feeling like you are being intrusive.
Why is Marly’s podcast different? Well, she talks about ALL fiber art. There may be other podcasts that do the same, but none on the scale that she does. Every episode is so full of amazing information, and just well rounded. Her guests are so knowledgable and so fun to listen to! I find that most podcasts talk about knitting for the most part, and while I love knitting, crocheting is my main squeeze, so having a podcast that hits on them both just speaks to me on all levels!
She broadcasts live every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. MST. She has chances to win items, so be sure to listen live and get involved!
