  2. I listen to your pocast both in the car and while I’m knitting. Depends on the day. I am still catching up so I can listen to two or three in a row. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I’m all catch up. Thank you so much for all the effort you put into the Podcasting. I really enjoy it. Can’t wait to hear show 100.
