Eavesdropping

Love listening to this. It always feels as though I am privy to a private conversation.....wish I had a knitting/fibre buddy with shared interests or even lived closer to Clapham for the Knit Night.

My favourite knitting podcast

Allison and Rachel have a wonderful friendship which makes this podcast. Their banter is wonderful to listen to and this podcast is always full of yarny news from the UK and further afield. There are occasional interviews and reviews of new books and yarn, and there is always a section on what they're currently working on or have finished. Like the rest of us, they occasionally have the urge to cast on all the things! I actively look out for this podcast, the next episode is always eagerly anticipated.

Room for improvement

I only started listening to podcasts in the past 3 months so I'm still learning what I like. This isn't my favourite; I find the intro sections to the recent podcasts disjointed and they sound forced. Maybe it's down to it being done over Skype which introduces lag? Not sure, but it makes for conversation and linking pieces that don't flow how they should. Production could be improved too as one voice is often distorted (again - Skype issues?), and in the most recent episode the sound balance was poor, with the interview being much quieter than the rest of the interview. The volume also varied throughout the interview, which is frustrating, and conversation not always clear. I might knock this one off my list soon but will give it time.
