Worth a listen but Needs more content

This pod is fine when they actually talk about making, but most of every pod is them talking about the pod...we get it, you have a podcast. Get back to your making talk. :)

So much more than making

This show is so much more than making. I would say Vincent and Ethan simply frame life things through the lens of making. It’s like having a conversation with a couple of friends and it makes me want to be a maker!

MaddK68 ,

Must listen for artists and maker’s

These guys have a show that is so entertaining I can’t stop listening! Full of good info and tips!
