A weekly podcast for people who work in the Trades and Construction, that aren't just trying to survive, but have the ambition and desire to thrive.
You’d be hard-pressed to find someone more determined than our friend Luke McFadden. A self-taught waterman and crab fisherman out of Maryland, Luke knew from as far back as he can remember that he wanted to be on the water fishing crabs. But the big problem was that he didn’t know anyone in an industry that’s traditionally a family business. Against all odds he learned the ropes to become a fulltime waterman as the captain of the F.V. Southern Girl, and runs his own YouTube channel with over 380,000 subscribers. Check out his whole story and learn what it takes to never give up on your dreams.
Calling all fisherman and mechanics this week. Luke McFadden is the new up and coming expert crabber in Maryland and has made quite a name for himself. Luke details his journey of finding his passion in crabbing through a love of fishing and hunting as a kid.
Luke has documented his entire rise on his social media creating informative and fun content for everyone to enjoy ranging from crabbing to fixing up old vehicles. Luke does it all.
Luke takes us on the wild ride that was his start in the crabbing industry that required endless determination and hard work. Tune in for another heater of an episode!

Interesting and well made
I work as a pipe fabricator for a large company and I am fortunate enough to be able to use headphones at work. I like hearing about other trades and to get a first person take from people who are in specific trades. I don’t know what I like more, my Brunt boots or the podcast. Thanks guys, keep ‘em coming.
