    Most of us have a lot of stuff. A great deal of that stuff is useful, but that doesn't mean it has to be immediately accessible at all times.

    Oh, yay! It's time to talk about sewers! Because of Taro Gomi's classic book, we all know that every home needs a way to manage waste. In this episode we talk about all types of sewers, what a sewer scope inspection will find, and talk about many gross and fascinating things. We also address the perennial question: What should I work on first in my new home?? Show notes page: https://www.thehonestinspector.com/?p=1025

    Radon 101

    This week we talk about radon - what it is, where it comes from, how to measure it, and how to mitigate. The State of Minnesota recently enacted a law requiring licensure for radon measurement professionals, and as a part of that licensure, Christopher has to complete several hours of continuing education a year. In this episode he shares some of the things he learned at his last class. Show notes: https://www.thehonestinspector.com/?p=1015

Informative and Entertaining

Nice "bite sized" episodes which give enough of a dive into a specific topic that a homeowner who wasn't raised to know how to care for a house can get a clue of where to start. I'm looking forward to more episodes some day.
