At the moment it is podcasts from BBC Radio 4, which is one of the few things I miss from the UK, I listen to when I knit. I had forgotten or possibly erased from memory how few programs on NRK, the Norwegian Television Broadcaster I enjoy watching. My British husband finds Norwegian television rubbish most of the time and we are grateful for Itunes so that we can rent movies, television series from the BBC and easily listen to podcasts. Anyway, listening to a podcast is so much easier when you knit and need to keep checking your pattern and your calculations. My favourite, at the moment – actually for the last year or so – is Saturday Live with Rev Richard Coles and broadcaster Sian Williams.
“Real life but not as you know it. Radio 4’s Saturday morning show is full of the stuff that matters, extraordinary stories, inheritance tracks, guerrilla reports, secret lives, poetry and more.” The friendly, chatty and charming presenters and guests in the studio brightens and enlightens you. It even includes one time Lebanon hostage, now acknowledge travel journalist John McCarthy’s program Excess Baggage that take you to foreign and less traveled places. Listen and enjoy: bbc.
