Makers!

Cool show! Just please don't create robots that take over the world! hahaha

Michael from Long River, PEI ,

Great Podcast!

I was looking for a great podcast on making and I found it! I enjoy listening to stories on how people make specific items, and how their background + education enable them to create. For example, I just listened to the podcast on Red Cloak Studios: It was pleasure hearing about the craftsmanship that goes into the custom furniture pieces. The host does a great job of asking questions and coming back to higher level themes throughout the discussion.

I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in making! Keep up the great work.
