For every day of the month of February, there’s a prompt for fiber enthusiasts to use as a theme for a photo and caption that share something about themselves.
Well. Day 5 was “one podcast I love.”
Always on the hunt for a good Knit to This, I sat up and paid attention.
Day 5 did not disappoint. Thanks to Jen Geigley’s response to this prompt, I now have a new favorite podcast with more than 18 months of back episodes to entertain me.
It’s LeVar Burton Reads. Every week, LeVar Burton reads a short story. Right in your ears. Scrolling through the list, I realized that most of the authors, and virtually all of the stories, are completely new to me. Many of them are science fiction, a genre that LeVar Burton apparently loves a lot.
It’s just amazing. The episodes are fairly short, around 30-50 minutes or so, great for a knitting break.
I dived in and picked my first story: Episode 36: “Morning Child” by Gardner Dozois. It was fantastic.
Up top is Episode 6. “Graham Greene” by Percival Everett.
With the help of LeVar Burton, I am going to get this sweater done by the 28th.
