New Podcast Love

I am a person who loves listening to podcasts while I crochet, knit, spin or work on embroidery.  Some podcasts I listen too are spiritual, some are informative and some are just plain fun.  I have updated my page of favorite podcasts, which you can find here.

I have recently discovered a new podcast, Aunt Jane of Kentucky, read by Frances O’Roark Dowell.  Since I am a Kentucky girl at heart, I knew this podcast was definitely for me and it is awesome!  Be sure to check out Frances blog at Quilt Fiction for more information on the this podcast.

Hello and welcome to Season Two of the Quilt Fiction podcast. In this season, I’ll be reading Aunt Jane of Kentucky by Eliza Calvert Hall. First published in 1907 and  set in rural western Kentucky in the late nineteenth century, the book recounts an elderly quilt-maker Aunt Jane’s memories of life in the rural south as told to an unnamed younger woman visitor. The book was hugely popular in its time, reaching over a million readers, and President Theodore Roosevelt was one of Aunt Jane’s biggest fans. —- Frances O’Roark Dowell

I also have discovered The Rural Woman Podcast.  While I am not a farmer, I find this podcast quite interesting and came across it by chance from following Kim Goodling, who raises Gotland Sheep.  I love spinning Gotland and enjoyed learning about it in a breed study I did a few years ago.

On this week’s episode of The Rural Woman Podcast, you’ll hear from Kim Goodling. Kim is shepherd to a flock of Gotland sheep on a hillside farm in Vermont. Kim and her husband began homesteading many years ago as a way to provide healthy food for their family,  live a self sufficient lifestyle, and participate in Vermont’s rich agricultural heritage. —- Katelyn of Wildrose Farmer

People listen to podcasts for various reasons but for me I enjoy listening to learn and to be part of a community of creative minds.  Do you have a favorite podcast?  I would love for you to share!

Until next, be creative!
