So…I love listening to podcasts. I also love to talk. And I have a friend who loves to talk. Her name is Christy of Fountains of Home blogging fame and mother of many small Canadian children. And we started a podcast!
We want it to be something you can listen to while folding laundry, going on a run, driving around, or doing the dishes. Like having a fun chat with some friends.
We’re still learning and we’re rather silly. But so far, we’re having a blast. This week we posted our very first one, sharing a little bit about who we are and why we wanted to start the podcast and Daniel’s horrible podcast name ideas.
I had a cold and was losing my voice during this first attempt, so I think we improve when we get to Episode 2. But it’s a fun intro chat. In a two girlfriends being silly kinda way.
BUT, if you’re not into silliness, next week we get serious and interview the wonderful Jenny Uebbing, blogger at Mama Needs Coffee about Catholic teaching on sexuality, marriage, NFP, and all that jazz. So don’t write us off if we’re too ridiculous this time around. We can get down to business!
We have three more great interviews lined up with some amazing women, so stay tuned! (And if there’s something you’d like to hear us talk about, let us know!)
You can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes here, and Stitcher for Android devices.
And remember to listen to all episodes and for all the show notes, head to fountainsofcarrots.com .

I’m probably way too excited for this!
Y’all are too funny. Can’t wait to get a chance to listen!
Too fun! I will totally check it out, I love having a good list of podcasts 🙂
Can’t wait to listen on my drive home tonight! Just FYI, in case anyone asks–you guys show up in the Podcast Republic app, if any other Android users use that. (I think it draws from iTunes somehow? I don’t know. It just works.)

Congratulations to you and Christy! I can’t wait to listen. I’d love to hear you talk about miscarriage/pregnancy loss from a Catholic perspective, if that’s not too heavy of a topic… But I’m sure you could’ve already guessed that.
Christy and I have already written that topic down on our list of future episode topics! It’s a wonderful idea, Mandi.
This sounds great, I’m so excited! You should totally interview Auntie Leila, I have a feeling she’d be great to interview!
Great idea, Amanda!

Yay! I’m so excited for this! I love listening to podcasts and I’m all caught up on the ones I normally listen to lol
THANK YOU! I’ve been listening to the Serial podcast by Sarah Koenig and really, really need something to lighten things up. Your podcast sounds like a real treat!
Loved podcast no. 1, Haley! Congrats to you & Christy!
Oh my gosh! I loved y’all’s podcast. I listened to it during my workout and you kept me motivated for the entire podcast. Bravo!
Yay! I’m so glad, Dee! <3

Yay! I love listening to podcasts while I clean.
I listened and it made my workout fly by! Thanks for the chat!
Oh good! <3
Yay!!! I wish I had a more coherent thought but it’s so wonderful. It’s just like sitting on the couch listening to two awesome girlfriends chat to me over coffee. I’m so excited. 🙂
That is EXACTLY what we were hoping for. That makes my day, Willow.
I’m in the middle of listening to Episode 1, and why did I wait so long to start listening to podcasts? I feel like I’m sitting down with friends, drinking tea, and listening to a great conversation! Wahoo for Fountains of Michaelmas!!
I can’t believe I typed the wrong name! I blame the children for distracting me!
Yay! That’s what we were going for, Angela! And no worries, I can barely remember my own name most days, not to mention someone’s podcast, haha!
Thanks for keeping me company while I cleaned the kitchen late last night! So fun 🙂 I have to admit, while I do love the meaning behind the name Carrots for Michaelmas, I wondered if there was a hidden reference to Anne in the name “Carrots” 😉
When I first thought about changing the blog name a couple of years ago a reader said, “no, leave it! It makes me think of the Anne-girl!” And I was so glad 🙂
You’ve completely succeeded in making me feel like I have you both in my home for a cup of tea and some girl time.
LOVE the podcast! I finally listened last night while baking some cranberry orange pecan bread. It truly did feel like chatting with friends. If only I could have yall over for some coffee and a slice of that bread! 😉 Happy Thanksgiving to you ladies and your families!
Just finished listening to your first podcast and it was a delight. I definitely had a “bloggers: they’re just like us!” moment and it was awesome. So nice to feel connected to other woman with similar interests and beliefs in this way! Can’t wait to sneak away for the second episode!
