This was a great show while it lasted!

What happened to season two? This was a great podcast, and I especially like that the host called an expert on the topic, which helps this podcast be more informative.

The bottom line: If you want to learn some home-improvement topics, this is a good podcast. If you want something that is updated regularly, look elsewhere.

Left hanging…
