Modern Craftsman

Modern Craftsman is more than just a podcast. It’s a community. A hub for those in this industry to promote excellence, education, knowledge and respect. To share what they’ve done right and what they’ve done wrong. To talk about building, life, leadership, mental health and everything in between. And we want to partner with vendors, brands and people that share the same goals: to make people better, to make the industry better and to advocate for a better life in the trades.
