I’ve been enjoying listening to Podcasts this time of year. It’s especially something I find that keeps my mind busy when I’m doing tasks that don’t require a lot of brain effort. I’m the kind of person that needs silence in order to concentrate or else I tend to make mistakes. But when I’m doing things like quilting, sewing a sample, on a dog walk, folding laundry, packaging leather, cooking or cleaning, I love to tune into a good podcast. Oh and if I’m on a road trip alone, it’s the best. I used to really dislike driving alone for long stretches. The radio was never interesting enough and a book on tape required too much focus – I would end up daydreaming and staring out the window and missing a chapter. It’s actually turned driving alone into something I enjoy and look forward to.
I thought it would be fun to share what podcasts I’ve been into lately. For me, I love it when people share what they’re interested in. I always check out recommendations. And I find that I can always pick up helpful things or bits of knowledge even when the subject isn’t directly applicable to sewing or creativity.
So here’s my list of podcasts, some I’ve listened to for years, while others I’ve just started. Hopefully it’ll inspire you to tune in.
- The Simple Show
- Love to Sew
- Oprah’s Super Soul Sundays
- Food Blogger Pro Podcast (I feel like I could dedicate an entire post to the Devid Lebovitz post, loved it)
- Explore Your Enthusiasm
- Honest Money Conversations
- The Fizzle Show
- Courage + Clarity
- Young House Love (has a podcast)
- Chris Loves Julia Podcast
- The Lively Show
- How I Built This
- Making (new, but formerly the Woolful Podcast)
- Elise Gets Crafty
- While She Naps
The only thing I need to do next is to find a pair of wireless headphones. If you have any recommendations let me know! Also, let me know your favorite podcasts!
ps. I’m doing a little winter cleaning and I’ve got a giveaway in the works for next week. 🙂
