A Scrap Life: Episode 14 | Nick Snyder of United Metals Recycling
I love my job for a lot of reasons, but one of the main reasons is I get to work everyday with most of my best friends. We get to hustle together, grind together, and just enjoy work and life together. Nick Snyder is one of those guys, and a guy that I have the upmost respect for! A true hustler that is probably the most optimistic guy I know. Willing to take on any task or crazy project that we can scheme up together, Nick is one of us… a true Scrapper… I hope you enjoy the podcast!
A Scrap Life: Episode 13 | Phil Sacco of Sierra International
It's no secret I've bought a few pieces of Sierra equipment over the years. So, when Phil Sacco came into town the other day, we had an opportunity to sit down and talk scrap, talk equipment, and more importantly, family business. Both of us are third generation family business guys, who love the scrap industry, and become friends over the years. I really enjoyed this podcast, and I hope you guys do as well.
A Scrap Life: Episode 12 | Chris Proler of PH Group
When I started doing this podcast a year ago, I knew it'd give me an opportunity to meet great people in our industry. Chris Proler of PH Group down in Texas is one of those guys. We got personal, we discussed scrap, and shared some great family business stories. Good times, and I hope you enjoy this podcast.
A Scrap Life: Episode 11 | Nathan Fruchter of IDORU Trading
I'm always on the hunt for knowledgable scrap people. I was lucky enough to get introduced to Nathan Fruchter of Idoru Trading. We operate in very different arenas of the scrap industry, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history of the export scrap industry here in the U.S. Nathan is a scrap guy through and through, and I have a feeling you'll enjoy this podcast!
A Scrap Life: Episode 10 | Danny Jones with EG Metals Inc.
Technology is crazy! I finally got my buddy Danny Jones, the CEO of EG Metals, to carve out some time for a podcast, while he was in Dubai of all places. We've done a lot of business over the years, and I always enjoy talking to this guy about life, our history, and why we both love the scrap industry. Enjoy!

A Scrap Life: Episode 9 | Sean Davidson of the Davis Index
I had heard about Sean Davidson through the grapevine and I became more and more curious about his scrap pricing index as I began to dig for more accurate information. In the process, I got to meet Sean and realized his passion for the scrap industry was genuine, so I asked him to sit down and tell me the story on this podcast of the Davis Index.

I’ve been a hobby scrap enthusiast for over ten years now; but am now in the very early stages of transitioning out of public education and into owning my first yard. I’m doing everything I can to soak up whatever information I can find. I can’t say enough how much I appreciate the industry insight that Brett’s podcast has introduced to me. I stumbled on to his podcast, and this little nugget has led me to all kinds of invaluable resources. Thank you for doing what you do, and putting it out there for folks like me! Thanks, MoMetal
