Episode #19 She-Knits is a good way! Also a double apology

A listener commented that she was "sad and shocked" that I said that the woman on Geek Farm was annoying. I want to clarify that I have never listed to Geek Farm and on this weeks podcast I was reading aloud other peoples comments that were in response to my quest for finding new podcasts to listen to since there seemed to be a shortage of enough knitting ones. A few people mentioned Geek Farm Life however a number of them also shared with me that they found the "woman on the show is irritating". I was reading these comments out loud not even thinking about what I was saying. I wasn't saying that I found her to be annoying, but rather that some listeners found her to be annoying. I never should of mentioned the "irritating" part. It was unnecessary, insensitive and a careless mistake. I apologize for my lack of recognition as to what I was saying and am sincerely sorry if I upset anyone in saying this. I would never intentionally say something mean-spirited about an individual on my podcast. Yes I have said that I do want to be honest in my opinion about book reviews or the scatchy yarn factor, however I would never purposely say something mean-spirited about a person . As silly as this podcast may be, I take it seriously in terms of a certain responsibility about what comes out of my mouth. There are human beings behind those podcasting voices that come out of the computer, or i-pod, and there are human beings listeing to these words. This human being/ podcaster made a mistake and I apologize.

Apology #2- and this one is about my on-doing lack of tech skills.

I thought I learned how to edit at my lesson at the Apple Store...which I kind of did, however...I recorded the episode, and then realized I wanted to add something, which of course I can do becaseu I learned how to edit....right?? WRONG! So the first time I sign off don't click off the show (...or maybe do) as it continues on woth another part that I added late, including ending again. Sorry for being confusing...and double PEACE to you this week.....and me

Hey Sharon!
I know what I am having for dinner tonight.. the recipe sounds awesome! Now how about that nuclear spaghetti or whatever you called it?

Don't be so hard on yourself. I know it feels rotten to feel like you've mis-spoken, but hey, you're human!
