Love the new podcast!
Dave is one of my favorite Makers for several reasons. He’s got a ton of talent and knowledge AND he’s a great guy. I love that he’s thrown his hat in the podcast ring and I look forward to seeing this show grow.
This is a fantastic new take on the maker community. Def worth your time
