    After a 6 month hibernation, the boys are back and we're live from Chris's workshop! Recording in person instead of over video call was so much more fun to make and we added video too!! Sorry for the little bit of mic noise from me - Mike... learning how to use handheld mics better!

Who Was John Galt? ,

Great show

I’m more of a woodworker and hobby farmer but this gives good insight to other media.

Sadly it seems that their last episode must have got them into hot water with the Netflix and CBS mafia. They completely dropped off and have not addressed the podcast cutoff on any of their other platforms.

I hope you guys are safe!!

@Roonwerks ,

I started at Episode one!

Hey there, my journey to the podcast started on YouTube actually. I first subscribed to Homemade modern and after a few months drifted over to IG and followed Ben Uyeda where he mentioned the podcast. I listened to the lasted five episodes at that time, somewhere around 200-210 and decided I liked it enough, but I wanted to get more background on these Mike and Chris characters. Well it only took me about six months of commuting (the only time I listen to podcasts) and I can finally say I am caught up! Some of the beginning episodes were meh, but they were still feeling each other out. Now it’s pretty solid! I’ve come to enjoy each other personality and strengths to the podcast. I hope they stick together and keep it going as I’m just starting a side hustle woodworking business and YouTube account. These guys build so much enthusiasm about making and sharing with videos. Love the show guys!

Kudos to the Editor for:
