In general, I'm enjoying this podcast. It's well-produced, and Vickie is obviously comfortable in the spotlight. Sometimes, though, the interviews seem to be more focused on who Vickie knows than what would be interesting for listeners. They drag on and on and aren't really knitting- or craft-related (the one with Will from SNL is a great example... for someone who's supposedly really funny, that interview was a snoozer!). All in all, though, I will keep listening as the overall quality is great.
informative and very well done
Vickie does a wonderful job with her podcast. She's a pleasure to listen to. The podcast is very professional and extremely informative. Vickie does an excellent job interviewing her guests. She asks just the right questions and the entire podcast is just fun to listen to!
Always love listening to Vickie on DIY and so I look forward to hearing from her via my ipod.
