About Sticks & String and me
G’day all. I’m David Reidy, a Australian bloke who lives in the Blue Mountains two hours west of Sydney, and knits and podcasts about knitting. Away from the sticks and string, I’m an astrophysicist who now teaches high school. In my knitting and podcasting endeavours I am assisted by my two Burmese cats, Tikka and Tiger.
The Sticks and String podcast appears weekly, so look for a new show each weekend.
