I found later episodes of the podcast to have lots of information and definitions and rules.... Basically, the tone of this podcast is not for me. I'm a beginner and am excited about creativity, I don't want a lot of different rules about color. If I was more experienced and looking to enter a contest, I would probably find this more helpful. I'd recommend it to those that own fabric shops or are more serious quilters. Also, the lifestories commented on in other reviews are fine, but it can be hard for a younger audience to relate.
