About:

Destination DIY is an independently produced public radio show and podcast bringing you stories about all kinds of creativity.

Taking the DIY lens beyond home improvement and crafts, we explore all kinds of ways people are working with limited resources to create rather than consume the world around them. Destination DIY blends recorded field sound, in-studio interviews and personal narration to create an arc that takes listeners on a journey and brings them back inspired.
