I'm a big fan of Gretchen Rubin's podcast Happier. On a recent episode she shared a simple and free gift giving idea that I wanted to pass along. Gretchen's "Gift of Podcast" is a was to share your favorite podcasts with friends and family. On the Gift of Podcast website you can even download a certificate for giving the gift. She also shares details for how to listen on your iPhone, iPad, or Android, or using a smart speaker.
Here are a few of my favorites that I've been listening to lately:
Co-hosted with her sister Elizabeth craft, they discuss happiness and good habits.
Cohosts Helen Wilkinson and Caroline Somos discuss garment sewing, the sewing community, and small business, including interviews with indie business owners and inspiring sewists.
Stephanie chats with creatives in the quilting industry, sharing the latest tips and trends.
A podcast about language and how we use it. Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett discuss changes in language, origins of odd phrases, and interesting tidbits.
Brains On! Science podcast for kids
An award-winning science podcast for kids and curious adults. Also check out their spin-off Smash Boom Best.
Impressive and interesting stories on how people have built their well known companies.
I hope you enjoy these. And please share your favorite Podcasts in the comments below. Best of all, with just one shopping day until Christmas, giving the Gift of a Podcast will save you a trip to the mall. ;-)
