***Audiobooks-with-Benefits for Busy People***
Love the classics—or wish you did? *** No time to pick up a book? Not any more! *** This weekly annotated audiobook podcast presents curated classic literature in a serialized format. The host—Heather Ordover—"teaches to the joke" by filling in any relevant tidbits before listening to the next chapter of the book. *** Callers regularly send in voicemail comments for play on the air to keep the "book club" vibe going. *** The podcast has been in continuous weekly production since 2006 — our current book, "Sense & Sensibility" by Jane Austen, begins with episode 378.

Our humble podcast has been graced by the Editor-in-Chief of SoHo Publishing's Knit.1 magazine Adina Klein (SoHo also does Vogue Knitting and Knit Simple). Aside from being awful fun to talk to, Adina is a knitter, crocheter, painter, sketcher, purveyor of fine books (new ones!), and--my fave--a Nationally Ranked Scrabble Champ. Really! How cool is that!?! We might get a chance to talk to her again later this year. I'll keep you posted. So, kick back, enjoy a peek into the secret world of Knitting Mag creation, then go get yourself a copy of Knit.1's new Green Issue. Chock full-a good stuff. And for those who are non-knitters (I know you're out there!) you may want to take a look at the instructions at the back of the magazine. They're so clear, it may convince you to pick up some pointy sticks. Me? I'm off to weave for a bit. No, really!
