In today's modern world, we are always in such a hurry. We rarely stop to think about the things that “keep the gears turning”. On this podcast, we explore the people, technologies, items, or processes that, while at one time were considered outstanding, have today become so commonplace we take them for granted. This Podcast is an extension of the Youtube Series “How to Make Everything.” In that series, we show how difficult it can be to make an everyday item from scratch if one person, Andy George, had to do everything himself. We expand on the themes of the series by zeroing in other everyday subjects that were easily overlooked and find out how complex they really are. We also revisit and dive into our past projects and share behind the scenes secrets we’re unable to show on screen.

I love the YouTube channel and I’m excited to see that there was a podcast too. It’s a fantastic behind the scenes reveal that truly proves how much work goes into each project
I’m excited for the next one!
I missed the old style of editing on their videos and this greatly makes up for it. Much more in-depth behind the scenes and intimate with the experts.
