 aarontwas – Favorite Woodworking Podcast! – 5 Stars – I queue up podcasts while listening, and usually I’ll listen to one of a certain show, then another show.  When it comes to queuing up The Dusty Life, I’ll line up multiple shows to binge through, and I do not do that with any other podcasts for the most part.  I’ll almost be sad when I’m caught up.  Oh well, won’t stop me from listening to new episodes when they come out!
