Right now, aside from the occasional new recipes we’re making, the projects I’m working on are long-term in nature and I don’t have many in-progress reports to share.
I thought it might be a good time to write a little blog post about the podcasts I enjoy. While I work on most projects (and also while I clean or if I go for a run by myself), I have discovered that I like to listen to audiobooks or podcasts a lot more than just music.
So here’s a short list of my current favorites.
The Paperclipping Roundtable (PRT) — I think this was the first podcast I’d ever listened to, and it was the “gateway” into all the others 😉 It’s mostly about “paper” scrapbooking, but many of the episodes are more conceptual and can be applied to any kind of memory keeping. I am fascinated by the scrapbook industry, and between this podcast and all the blogs in my reader, I feel like I can keep up with trends and products.
The Digi Show — Nominally, this podcast is about digital scrapbooking, but like PRT, many of the topics discussed are way more widely applicable to all kinds of memory keeping. I also have learned so much about how to better use the technology I have available to me.
Capturing Magic — This podcast is about memory keeping, as well, but more specifically pertaining to all things Disney. Even though the last time I was at any Disney park was when I was in high school, I enjoy this podcast for two reasons: 1) I like the host (Steph, of the Digi Show) and her guests, and 2) often I can apply the ideas to vacation memory keeping in general. I hope to go back to Disney, and now I have some ideas and tips stored away for my someday-in-the-future trip!
Daily Digi Digest — Another podcast by the lovely lady behind The Digi Show. The episodes are much shorter and are interviews with digital scrapbook designers. I really enjoy hearing about people’s creative processes! The scope of the show is expanding to include interviews with digital scrapbookers, as well.
Capture Your 365 — I haven’t been listening to this podcast for very long. It is focused on photography, and specifically a photo-a-day approach. Since I just received a DSLR for Christmas, I am hoping to learn as much as I can about how to use it to it’s full potential, and this podcast is a good resource.
Mortification of Spin — For something completely different, I listen to this podcast as well. The discussions revolve around theological issues and while they are serious conversations, I definitely enjoy the sprinkling of humor and teasing between the hosts.
A Way With Words — I often save the episodes of this podcast for listening in the car on trips with Husband. We both really enjoy etymology, so we really enjoy the discussion of word origins and usage. It’s fun to pause the podcast and discuss our own opinions and impressions, too! 😉
I hope that maybe you’ll be inspired to try out some of these podcasts for your listening pleasure! Any that you’d recommend?
