Crafting a podcast | Blog

I apologize for the bit of hiatus with the blog. I've had so many irons in the fire so to speak I've had to place it on the back burner.

So whats new? Quite a bit, primarily I'm co-hosting a new podcast entitled the "Crafted Podcast" along with Johnny from The Crafted Workshop and James Wright from Wood by right. The idea behind this podcast is to discuss a broad range of subjects as they relate to making and craftsmanship in general. Some of our future topics are to include, metal, leather, the creative process, transitioning into making for money, etc.

As of today we have recorded 3 episodes and released 2, and are already holding position in the top 10 hobby podcasts on iTunes! We live stream every Thursday at 8pm Eastern time, and we feature an interactive chat where you can ask questions and interact with us during the show.
