I love podcasts.
It’s like making my own radio station but with shows that only I like.
Some news in German (Deutsche Welle), French (RFI), and Spanish (Caracol) and lots of crafting and historic crafting podcasts.
Below are some of my favorite crafting and historic crafting podcasts
By Gary Parr and special guests. Twice weekly (usually) on Wednesdays and interviews with embroidery artists on Sunday. There are live stitching sessions on YouTube every now and then.
The Embroidery Podcast (@theembroiderypodcast)
By Masako Newton and Marg Dier. Versions in English and Japanese. These RSN (Royal School of Needlework) graduates talk about different embroidery topics.
By Isabella Rosner, textile historian. Explores all types of needlecraft (embroidery, knitting, weaving, etc.)
It is well researched with lots of references.
By Laura Beltrán-Rubio, Sandra Mathey García-Rada, etc. These dress historians from the Parsons School of Design talk about fashion from a social science perspective centered in Latin America. In Spanish.
By Jo Andrews. Very interesting epidoses about artisans creating textiles. From Maison Sajou to the British farmers turning previously wasted wool into boutique products, very good.
By Interweave. Episodes about fiber types such as the origins of Spandex, the people trying to save the Manx sheep, etc.
