Unless you have a big manufacturing company knifemaking is a very solidary profession to do, and so we have a lot of time to listen to a lot of information while we are doing a task. Here is a small list if high quality podcasts, that will keep you company and help you develop as a maker.
A podcast that answers a lot of begginer questions, and some times does some deep dives in specific themes and questions. There are a lot of discount to the show listiners, a lot of funny stuff and some occasional weirdness...

A super interesting talk between some basilong makers, who mostly use CNC machining, often they nerd out about some new machines, talk about machine problems that they have and just tell how much they hate hard milling, it's a super fun listen every time!

It's very calm, warm and possitive talk about making in general, making content, bows or knives. Just some dudes chilling, having a good time and a few beers and sharing what they are making and their take on it.
