Cast On began on Monday, 31 October, 2005, founded on nothing more than the desire to talk about knitting to people who get it. All the other stuff, about how memories, thoughts, hopes and dreams are knit into the fabric we create, and so become part of the fabric of our lives; about how life and knitting intertwine, and how sometimes you simply cannot tell where one part leaves off the other begins; about how the only thing wrong with the world today is that there is not enough knitting in it, all that came later, over time. Since 2005 the podcast has evolved to focus on finding inspiration in the ordinary, using it to kick start the process of making stuff, and finding ways to carve out the creative time and space that allows you to work your a*s off on the projects that matter most to you. Like knitting a sweater. Or saving the world.

One of the most multifaceted cities in the world and with almost 4000 years of history, Jerusalem embraces a singular mosaic of civilizations, sights and religions. Despite its variety, the core of Jerusalem comprises a relative small area. One of the best ways to feel and unravel the Jerusalem puzzle is to tour first around its main lookout points – many of them located within walking distance or a short drive. Just by listening to the tour you will get a sense of Jerusalem’s uniqueness, and once you stand before the vistas you will be thrilled by the inspiring sights.

Great Discoveries audio tour of Santa Maria Novella provides today’s tourists with the most entertaining and informative way to visit Florence’s third most important church after the Duomo and Santa Croce. Construction started on the sumptuous new headquarters of the powerful Dominican Order in 1278 and was not completed until 1360, almost one hundred years later. Its name Novella (new) stems from the fact that it was built on the site of an earlier church Santa Maria delle Vigne. The basilica’s interior is truly magnificent, with arches in two colors leading gracefully toward the high altar. It is vast, lofty, illuminated by ample sunlight and more Gothic in feel than any other church in Florence. Treasures aplenty fill the interior, a groundbreaking painting by Masaccio, a crucifix by Giotto and three major fresco cycles. This carefully researched tour guides you through the Basilica, while our professional narrator points out and describes the most significant works of art and other historic treasures.
