Welcome to the first episode of Cut the Craft! The hosts, Amy Umbel and Brien Beidler, give the listeners a view into the motivation behind the podcast and an understanding of why it matters to hear the stories of craftspeople. Amy speaks about her journey into woodcarving, the importance of visibility, and how her work is changing. Brien gives listeners a glimpse into the world of bookbinding, his love of historic bindings, how his environment shaped his interest in craft, and most importantly why The Lord of the Rings is the best book ever written.
