Amazing podcast full of facts Bants and great introduction music

Amazing pod cast proper little banger, I have binged this and now listen weekly.
Great pub style commentary filled with witty banter and lots of knowledgeable subjects… mainly Fred. Hearing the introduction music always brings a smile.
If Fred does a only fans there are plenty of construction innuendos which he could use… “Massive Erections” stealing from the TBM idea “Fred Drills”
Anyway I digress from construction, have the B1M thought about looking into the move from methane gas to Hydrogen in the Uk gas mains for Example Hynet in the north west?
Keep up the great pod casts lads!

Hmm

I love the B1M Podcast, I’m a carpenter by trade. But Luke Blythe makes me cringe every time. Has no construction knowledge at all and sometimes wonder why he is on a construction podcast. Big up to the rest of the gang though haha!

Toppest quality

Excellent podcast. First of, all three guys are extremely personable and are well informed and knowledgeable. The nineties film choices are excellent and the references to sticky nightclub carpets are very relatable. Educational from how buildings and infrastructure are created and all presented with a boyish enthusiasm most people should envy.
