I mentioned last week that I have been listening to podcasts while walking with Ellerie around the neighborhood. I love it because I feel like I'm getting exercise, Ellerie is getting fresh air and I'm able to learn something interesting at the same time. Recently, I have been really enjoying the Another Mother Runner podcast. I haven't listened to it in awhile but I also really like Dishing up Nutrition. If you are a scrapbooker, I am sure you've heard of Paperclipping Roundtable. I have been a guest on that one a few times and enjoy it as well. I'm always hearing good things about This American Life, Simple Mom and Joy the Baker, but have yet to get into those three.
I would love to hear in the comments what you love to listen to!
And though it seems like there are endless options of podcasts available, I am really interested in starting my own. (Five or so years late to the party, I know.) It was sort of whim when I threw it out on twitter, but I haven't stopped thinking about it since. Ideally, I'd love to chat weekly or bi-weekly about motivation, creativity, making stuff, goal-setting and whatever else comes up. I plan on running through my Rolodex of creative friends and acquaintances as guest hosts, and then building a larger Rolodex of interesting people to share their thoughts. We'll hear from letterpressers, food bloggers, authors, artists, photographers, gardeners, florists, marathoners, inventors, small business owners, moms, dads and more.
This is not a "get-rich quick" or even a "get-rich slow" scheme. It's more of a "Dude, I really want to make this happen" scheme. But I need a little help to get started. If you (or someone you know) can help me launch a podcast (tell me the equipment I need to buy, how to create the recordings, how to make it work with guests, how to upload to iTunes, etc.) please shoot me an email. I am more than willing to pay for assistance and guidance from someone who knows what they are doing. I want to get this rolling soon and know it would be easier if I had some help that isn't just Google.
So yes! Share your favorite podcasts! Email me (elise.blahaATgmail.com) if you know how to start one!
