I listen while I build in my workshop
I love listening to these two prop makers while I build. They both bring really unique experiences to what they talk about, across a wide range of themed episodes about an aspect of making. It often leads to great little side stories about prop building, especially humble learning from mistakes, which we can now learn from too. I love it.
My favorite podcast
