On the boob tube (video podcasts)

DogDare podcast with David a.k.a DogDare, very interesting and I like his approach to podcasting. You should check him out as he is co-hosting a KAL and some of the profits are going to medical service dogs which is amazing. Found by David following me on Instagram.

Mean Girls podcast with Rebecca and Stephanie, these two had me cracking up on the most recent episode and I am now watching from the beginning. Found via DogDare podcast.

In the earbuds (audio podcasts)

Both found by doing an audio search on Podcast Addict.

Cottage Notebook with Nadia a.k.a. bunnyt Nadia does interviews on her podcast and I enjoyed listening to Episode 5 with Gillian Harkness a.k.a. Poppylillious, the designer behind Rios Rocks hat collection that we gave away recently.
Check out her designs in her Ravelry group Mina Loves Designs. You will also find out what the inspiration was behind her design shop name.

Destined2knit with Kimberley a.k.a. destined2knit and Marcy a.k.a. xchorse. I just started listening and on episode 1 so far I like the feel and the genuineness of both ladies.
