    199. Where's Bob w/ Bob Moffatt

    In this weeks episode, I’m hanging out with Mr. Bob Moffett. We got to hang out at the XCEL Welding competition last weekend up in Dallas Georgia and watch a bunch of young welders compete in several different skills competitions. Bob and I sit and chat about the competition, what he’s been up to, PPE, different tools and equipment to make your work easier,  youtube channels, and other great resources for the up and coming generation of welders.

    198. Don't Judge Me w/ Stephanie Hoffman and David Madero

    In today’s episode, I am talking to Stephanie Hoffman and David Madero,  bad ass metal artists and hosts of the new Metal Shop Masters on Netflix. Today we discuss what it’s like to go from welding to hosting a show that’s broadcasted all over the world. We also talk about what it’s like to be a judge on the show, what they’ve been up to since it aired, what they’re doing now, and what they have coming up next.

    196. Dedicated to Welding w/ James Bowen

    196. Dedicated to Welding w/ James Bowen

    This week I am talking to James Bowen. James has a really interesting story about starting off in the industry as an underwater welder and transitioned into the world of welding inspection. I first got to meet James at the Arcs and Ales Event during Fabtech in Chicago this year. You see, it’s all about networking. By going to all of these different events, you get to meet a lot of cool people in the welding industry. You never know who you’ll meet at a welding conference or event so try to get to as many as you can.

PhockerFabs ,

Could ask for a better podcast for the welding community!

Jason has one done one heck of a great job with the ArcJunkies podcast. I’m stoked for the quality of content he brings and the guests he has. A lot of great people are sharing a lot of great information. It’s a 10/10 in my book and takes a lot for me to be impressed by a welding podcast due to fabricating for 20 years. It’s not a bunch of boomers talking about boomer things!

Jaba125 ,

Great conversationalist

Jason’s clearly skilled at keeping a conversation flowing and interesting! Bravo

Drinkin'n'Brewin ,

Great insights into the world of welding

Jason has done a phenomenal job of bringing the craft of welding to the public. As someone with over 20 years in the industry, I love the varied guests he brings on. This podcast is helping to bring more awareness to the trades in general and pulls back the curtain on life under the hood.
