Kelley currently has two episodes so far, and they are really interesting. I would check them out!

Sweet! I've been waiting for those!
Now if only I had a better MP3 player for the car...

You don't need an MP3 player, you can listen to it on Windows Media.

I have subscribed to the podcast and I do enjoy it. I get it through iTunes and from there it goes directly into my iPod.

The tone is conversational and the content is a mixture of personal commentary and technical information (e.g., one episode was all about different types of wool fibers: sheep source, length, crimp, etc.) She reviews books as well; the last episode included her descriptions and evaluations of three books on felting. Another episode featured the vice-president of Knitpicks describing her job, which may sound boring but I actually found it extremely interesting. That's probably because I'm a refugee from a career in medicine and the idea of having a job in "Knitting" seems like a sweet idea. They knit all the time at that place, like during staff meetings and such. Wouldn't that be nice?

You know the one about the different knitting styles, where she says a listener asked her to talk about them, well, that listener was me. Except that she said 'her request" during the podcast, but it was me!
