Meet Kat Griffiths, one of six smart women who discuss Doctor Who on the podcast Verity!
As I’m learning as I dive deeper into the local podcasting scene, there are quite a few Edmontonians who are members of multi-host teams located all over the place. Verity! is one such, with two hosts based in Edmonton and the other four in the U.S., Tasmania and Scotland, all brought together by the wonders of the Internet and the bonds of fandom.
Kat is an enthusiastic proponent of “fangirling,” for which she makes an eloquent case in this episode and on her blog. You’ll hear more about that, along with the increasingly diverse universe of Doctor Who podcasts, not to mention the friends, opportunities and even love that podcasting about Doctor Who has brought into Kat’s life.
Here are Kat’s local recommendations:
- Press Start to Join, a podcast about video games and such, which she learned about at our Edmonton Podcasting Meetup.
- Edmonton food blogs, particularly (I think) Little Miss Andrea for her coverage of the ramen scene.
- Radio Free Skaro, the dean of Doctor Who podcasts, on which Kat’s partner Chris is a host.
And a couple of other Doctor Who podcasts that she highlighted:
This episode is brought to you by Sashiko Studio, where Lynne Fortowsky makes beautiful crafts featuring a 500-year-old form of Japanese stitching. In this episode, you’ll hear Lynne talk about how she fell in love with the art and what others love about it.
Sashiko Studio is one of several local businesses that Make Something Edmonton is highlighting this holiday shopping season. Read more on the Make Something Edmonton blog.
