I just listen to your podcast about the welders and machinist in the military and it’s awesome to see that other branches have the same stuff the marine corp does. I am a Cpl in the marines and I’m a welder so it’s awesome to listen to this and get a prospective I haven’t thought of and seen. Keep it up man I love the podcast

T Epting ,

The best

The only podcast I listen to religiously. As a Welding Instructor, I’m always looking for different spins on how to teach the art of welding. Very valuable.

Above and beyond

Jayson is one of the hardest podcasters in the word of welding! I emailed him a question and in minutes he answered it. That is just one of the ways I know he is on top of his game! Learning a lot keep it up!
