Awesome Podcast!! Keep it up!!
I just found this podcast and I have really enjoyed listening through them. I picked up something from every one in one form or another, and I would classify myself as handy around the house before I started listening. Highly recommended for experienced and inexperienced do it yourselfers. Only recommendation to the producers would be to add their recommendations more for specific products to narrow down the field when there is 1000 products to choose from.
The perfect podcast
This is a great podcast. To the point, funny and educational. Every podcast covers a small project that most everyone can do (or would do if they knew how). Great work. The hosts are very well versed in their knowledge on the subject matter. I have recommended this podcast to several people who have all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Where did you guys go? I love this podcast, I need more. I miss it terribly! New episodes please!!!!!!
