CraftSanity Episode 14: Crafting a Podcast with Sister Diane of CraftyPod Fame
If you’ve ever considered launching your own podcast or you want to know more about what goes on behind the scenes, you’re in luck. This week CraftyPod producer Diane Gilleland, a.k.a. Sister Diane, and I chat about what goes into creating a crafty podcast.

The great thing about crafty podcasting is that each person has something unique to bring to the craft table. Diane is 39 and single, while I’m a 29-year-old married mother of two girls, ages 2 and 5 months. We both have day jobs and love to craft. Diane, who leads the Church of Craft in Portland, Oregon, has been producing CraftyPod for about a year. I launched CraftSanity just three months ago.

To highlight the differences between our shows, we both recorded our roughly two-hour phone chat about podcasting and each have produced shows in our own styles using the same material. So check out CraftyPod episode 24 part 1 and part 2 to compare the different ways we approach podcasting. Besides providing some tips and inspiration to help you craft your own podcast, this episode will also give you a chance to get to know Diane and learn more about all the crafty goodness she creates in the world. You’ll even find out why she calls herself “Sister Diane.”
