Episode 3 of the Hello Craft Podcast features me, and I tell a story about my first venture into self-publishing. Go check it out, and you can actually see a copy of my first zine (before I knew they were called zines) on the site as well.
Also, Hello Craft wants to hear your stories about making and buying handmade. You can call their toll free voice-mail line and leave a story, or record your own and send it to them. Check out the Contribute to the Podcast page for more instructions, and then go ahead and participate!
