This Podcast will cover the Asphalt and Asphalt Maintenance industry, mainly from the perspective of a small business owner, but hopefully with some different perspectives as well. It will cover old things about the industry, New things, Outside things and future topics. The topics will include techniques, tools, material and insight. Not to be taken too seriously though, as the only people on the podcast who claim to be experts are the ones the audience chooses and your host, Marvin, chooses not to be in that category because he would rather spend his time cracking jokes and making memes.
