Concept to conversation, Handymakes creates fun audio experiences.
With our love of storytelling, podcasting and other audio experiences are a natural creative outlet for the Handymakes team. We currently host two podcasts, both irreverently reverential explorations of cultural phenomena. Coming next is Not on the Test, a podcast for kids that takes a single topic and puts it under a multidisciplinary microscope, revealing amazing bits of history, art, language, culture, and humor. Stay tuned!

Boring Books for Bedtime is a weekly bedtime story podcast for the sleepless, the stressed, the anxious, the insomniacs—anyone who struggles with the endless brain chatter that keeps us up at night.
In each episode, we calmly, quietly read something that's rather boring. Think Galileo, Aristotle, Emerson, and whoever wrote the craziness of the 1897 Sears Catalog. If you're on Team Sleepless, lie back, take a deep breath, and let us read you to rest.
Subscribe to Boring Books for Bedtime on Apple Podcasts, or through your favorite podcast distributor, like Stitcher, Spotify, or Google Play.

Gin and Cake is an exploration of one of the most weirdly popular reality shows on television: The Great British Bake-Off.
In it, generally polite people compete to bake cookies and cake while wandering around a tent on a bucolic English estate. Absurd? Yes! Which is probably why we, and tens of millions, love it!
We comment, question, wax rhapsodic, and speculate wildly about things we could probably know if we weren’t too lazy to look them up on the Internet. There's also a bunch of baking trivia. And a few Star Trek references, because that's never wrong.
