The Latest in FREE Crafting Information - FREE Crafting Podcasts!

There are just so many ways to get crafting information in today's day and age. Some are FREE, some are not. But, there's a whole slew of ways to get the crafting information that you want.

There are books, video's, DIY cable TV shows, crafts shows, craft courses, craft blogs, audio books, craft instructions, craft lessons, E-Products, E-Patterns, E-Stitcheries, E-Doodles, E-Graphics, .PDF E-Zines, tutorials, online magazines, and now PODCASTS.


What, you don't know what PODCASTS are?

Well, according to the Wikipedia Encyclopedia they are as follows:

A podcast is a media file which is distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds, for playback on portable media players and personal computers. Like 'radio', it can mean both the content and the method of syndication. The latter may also be termed podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster. The term "podcast" is a portmanteau of the name of Apple's portable music player, the iPod, and broadcast; a pod refers to a container of some sort and the idea of broadcasting to a container or pod correctly describes the process of podcasting.

Though podcasters' web sites may also offer direct
download or streaming of their content, a podcast is distinguished from other digital audio formats by its ability to be downloaded automatically, using software capable of reading feed formats such as RSS or Atom.

In other words, they are audio blogs that have radio segments that you can download in MP3 format to listen to on your IPod or MP3 player, or you can play and listen to them right from the blog.

Now that you know what a PODCAST is - I have the best news to tell you!

Angie Wenke, just bought Prim Talk Radio and she and some of the editors from Primitive Times Magazine are going to be doing craft podcasts. Angie officially takes over the first of April, but she and some of the editors of Primitive Times Magazine have already been doing some Prim Talk Radio crafting segments.

You might be wondering exactly what Prim Talk Radio is. Well, according to its' founder, Niki Jackson, of The Vintage Artist, Prim Talk Radio is an online internet radio show & podcast for primitive crafters.

Prim Talk Radio in other words is a series of FREE crafting radio show segments that can be downloaded as MP3 files directly from the website or syndicated through podcast subscriptions. The radio segments can also be can be played for your listening pleasure directly from the Prim Talk Radio blog website.

I have listened to many of the craft radio segments while working on my computer and have enjoyed each and every one of them. It's a great way to learn a new crafting skill while whiling away the hours on the computer.

And, to go along with her purchase of Prim Talk Radio blog Angie has created a new Prim Talk Radio website that is linked to the Prim Talk Radio blog where you can get all sorts of information on advertising on Prim Talk Radio, information about the staff, grand re-opening contests, etc.
So, if you haven't tuned in to Prim Talk Radio yet do yourself a favor and do so. The segments have been fabulous so far and with Angie and some of her Primitive Times Magazine editors involved now it should only get better.

Tune in to Prim Talk Radio and learn something new today.
