In this episode, I chat with the founder of Truewerk, Brian Ciciora. Brian’s background is in construction and product design, which provides him with the technical chops to design workwear and the experience to know what contractors need.
I learned a lot from Brian on what it takes to start your own business and why Truewerk believes they are the future of workwear.
My friend Mike Senese is one of the most talented people I know. Which is why I couldn’t wait to get him on the podcast. He’s a lifelong DIYer, who is as comfortable wrenching on an old Land Rover as he is building with a CNC machine. He’s currently the executive editor at Make magazine and former TV host on the science channel.
In this episode, he updates us on what's happening at MAKE, the best projects to get your kids started on, and of course his all-time favorite tools.
Marc Lyman is the founder of the long-running home improvement site, Home Fixated. As one of the first DIY/tool bloggers, Marc continues to thrive in the always changing landscape of blogging and media.
He's now diversified his career and is a well-respected real estate agent with Sotheby's in San Diego.
In this episode, Marc shares his thoughts on what tools and products we should check out and provides invaluable tips for prospective home buyers that will help them save time and money.
Today's episode is with former This Old House colleague, Dan DiClerico. Dan spent 10 years testing gear and products at Consumer Reports and now is the Home Expert and Smart Home Strategist at HomeAdvisor.
Dan shares his thoughts on the current state of smart home technologies, the best approach to bringing smart products into your home, and his personal experience renovating a 130-year old Brooklyn brownstone.
In this episode, I chat with Joanie Sprague. You may know her as the runner-up on cycle 6 of America’s Next Top Model, but I first met her almost 10 years when she was working as a carpenter and hosting her own show on the DIY Network.
She’s currently part of the all-star cast of the new Trading Spaces on TLC, and host of her own podcast called The Little Bit. In this episode Joanie shares what life is really like as a carpenter on Trading Spaces, her joy of teaching women how to use power tools, and some tips on building in a small workshop.
