Chris Schena ,

The best construction podcast

As somebody who has been goin to school for and working in construction for a 4 years now I’m always looking to learn new things and hear from different viewpoints in the industry. This podcast delivers, its fun entertaining and insightful, trying to find other podcasts that cover the content in a way that makes me want to keep listening has been impossible. This is the #1 construction podcast around. Keep up the great work!

Great podcast but Audio quality is awful

Really like the show when I can hear and understand what is being said. I don’t have this issue with other podcasts or audio in general.

His guest range from blue collar and white collar , all offering their perspective of their journey. So many great stories have been shared by everyday people who love what they do!
