Wealth of knowledge

I stumbled upon this podcast back in September and was immediately hooked. As someone who works in the trades, it can be difficult to find time to exchange ideas or collaborate on solutions to both the odd and the routine projects. These guys are entertaining and knowledgeable, and they aren’t afraid to issue the occasional correction or highlight the feedback of their listeners when it differs from their opinions.
I’ve spent the past 8 months listening to past episodes and I’m just about caught up. Not sure what I’m gonna do when theirs no backlog of episodes waiting for me, I’ll be BBC anxiously b awaiting the episode each week.

Used to be better

I have listened to this podcast for years. Always faithful listener and learned a lot from everyone on the show. Unfortunately, this new producer Andreas replaced Jeff when the company sold. The new guy has almost zero to contribute and it really takes away from the overall experience. I feel like if the podcast makes it another year, I’d be be surprised.

great insights and information

i have been listening to this for years and went back and picked up on the episodes that i missed. the information has always been great and even if there are a lot of things that I don’t need to hear about (I live in the Los Angeles basin) I always learn something. Well worth the time.
