Studio Stories podcast

Studio Stories on Amherst Island Radio
Lately I’ve been slacking on Lynn’s Lids felted goods creation because I have a new pet project… a podcast! Let me explain.

I live on Amherst Island, which has a year-round population of about 400 people and swells to 800 or more in the summer. There are a lot of creative people who live here. Also, we have a tiny, volunteer-run radio station (CJAI 92.1FM) in the milking shed of a no-longer-used dairy barn, that is always looking for new shows to fill the local (also online) airwaves. So I thought it would be fun to do an interview show with a different artist or artisan on every other week. They thought it was a good idea as well, so this week is episode 4, and I made it into a podcast as well.

For all of the details, either check out the iTunes podcast or go to cjai.ca/studiostories, where each episode has its own post with photos of the work of my interviewee, and links to their sites, if they have any. Click on the images below to visit their episode pages on cjai.ca.

Episode 1 was long-time islander and artist Shirley Miller.

  1. Hi Lynn

    I didn’t want to respond until I had listened to the podcasts. I listened to all four of them while I was threading my loom and I absolutely loved each one of them. You do this so well. Each person sounded so relaxed. It was as if I was part of a conversation sitting around the kitchen table.

    I’m going to send the link out to some my guild (Etobicoke Handweavers and Spinners) and I’m really looking forward to the next one!

    Please give my regards to your mother and thank you.

    Cheers,

    1. Hi Elizabeth, I’m so glad you enjoyed them! I really enjoy interviewing my guests and hearing their stories. And letting listeners know about artists and artisans they may not already know! Thanks so much for commenting. All the best to you and I’ll pass on your regards to Mom! Lynn
