I co-created the podcast in 2015 with Pip Vennall, and it is available via SoundCloud, iTunes, and YouTube. Playing on the popular adage among knitters that “friends don’t let friends knit drunk”, we produce monthly audio content about yarn and knitting life in Scotland, and also review alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as part of our regular content each episode; it’s like recording a monthly knit night.
Since launching, we have been official podcasters and members of the Blacker Yarns Podcast Lounge at Edinburgh Yarn Festival in 2017 and 2018, and joined also podcasters at Perth Festival of Yarn in 2017 and 2018. We regularly attend additional knitty events throughout the year, including but the Indie Burgh Yarn Crawl, and have produced reviews for pattern designers and yarn producers.
I am responsible for creating and sourcing supplementary online content, and managing the podcast’s social media presence. I also write the podcast’s show-notes, giveaways and Knit-Alongs (KALs) on our blog.
From September 2019 – December, I hosted and produced The Ampersand Project‘s podcast; The Ampersand Podcast. This was a podcast which focused on exploring mental health, wellbeing and selfcare, and the first three episodes are available on Anchor and Spotify.
