I know I've probably mentioned this before, but I drive about an hour to and from school every day. And since radio commercial pretty much drive me bonkers and I can't handle the silence, I listen to podcasts on my iPod! I have a couple of favourites, like Stuff You Should Know, and Hardcore History, but I have been desperately wanting a crafty goodness podcast to indulge in on my way to school.
But I've had a serious problem with the few that I've downloaded and tried. They ALL sound like the host is reading from a script word for word and I just can't take it. All the dramatic pauses for effect that you do when you're reading, the formal style of talking and the asking questions to the listeners when really you're in a room by yourself talking to a microphone. It just all sounds so forced and formal and awkward to me. I haven't even been able to finish an entire episode of the three that I've tried.
All my favourite blogs are super casual and super informative and I guess I like my podcasts the same way. Have you had any luck with knitting or crafting podcasts?
