Episode 1 – A Podcast is Born

The first iMake podcast! In this podcast there will be some chat about your host (by way of introduction of course) and a little about the podcast master plan.  We will cover some recent iMake creative exploits and also experience some of the culinary delights of Guernsey.

I really hope you enjoy my first podcast. Please feel free to email be any feedback, and, if it is actually good feedback, please post comments to the blog!  I am aware some of the vocal needs cleaning up so I will be working on that for next time.

Without further ado, here it is!  Please click the link below to listen online.  The show notes are directly below the link.

    I am happy to hear that you are doing a more general crafting podcast. I am also a knitter, hardcore, but I feel that I need to expand my crafting horizons, and hope that your podcast will inspire me to try new things.

    The sound quality was great, which I appreciate, since doing a podcast can be a major learning experience.

    One comment I have, is that it was hard for me to get to the site that is hosting your actual podcast. I found you via your main site on iMake.gg, but in order to get to the episode, I had to visit your facebook page from a Twitter link. If at all possible, it would be nice if there was a direct link to the podcast from your main page. Also, an rss feed for the podcast would be nice, so that we could use podcast aggregators in order to download it (for those of us not on iTunes.)

    I look forward to hearing all your crafting adventures!

      Hi there – thank you SO much for your comment and your very useful feedback about the links. I am really new to all this so any comments are really helpful. I will have a look at all the links tomorrow afternoon and make sure they are a lot better. There is an RSS feed that non-iTunes users can subscribe to. It is for the blog, so every time there is a new post it will show up in your aggregator. It is http://www.imakehandmade.wordpress.com/feed. Do you want to give that a try?

      Thank you again 🙂

    Have enjoyed both episodes of the podcast and look forward to more. I enjoy Yarns from the Plain too. It is great to have another podcast from the area especially with different kinds of crafts. May you go from strength to strength.
