I love PODCASTS!! I spend a lot of time in the shop doing manual tasks like sewing, pattern making, cleaning or book work and these podcasts have accompanied me through many late nights of work over the years. I find them engaging & inspiring & essentially they are my virtual learning, helping me gain insight into the world. I have a range of podcasts to listen to, my tastes have evolved over the years but here are a range of themes for you to browse, the majority are Australian and American podcasts. Let me know what you think. x Kalila
