Fun, accessible, informative

I’ve been binging the MWA Podcast during parental leave while I drive around getting my infant to sleep. As a total novice, it’s been extremely fun and informative to listen to the hosts talk about the latest in woodworking news and interview some movers and shakers in the woodworking world. I have found this podcast to be among the most accessible to newbies, which doesn’t take away from the high level of detail and discussion the hosts and guests get into. Keep up the fantastic work!

Needs shorter intros

Good interviews, but they spend waaaayyy too long talking about nothing beforehand.

Jason Barile ,

One of my favorite podcasts

I’ve listened to lots of woodworking podcasts, and this one consistently delivers great advice without all the juvenile over-the-top macho humor you get on others. They have excellent guests who are willing to share their experience and aren’t shy about telling it like it is. They always keep us up to date in the latest tool innovations but with a pragmatic approach to help sort the workhorses from the gimmicks. I spend about 3 hours mowing and doing yard work each week, and this is too on my listening list. By the time my yard work is finished, they have me jazzed about getting back into the shop to work on woodworking projects. Excellent podcast!
