Whether it’s over the morning cup of coffee or in the truck between appointments, make time to listen to these podcasts and you’re likely to learn some things you can use.
Each new episode of this podcast is worth the wait. PHC News Editor Steve Smith and others from the PHCPPros editorial team interview industry leaders.

This plumbing podcast would be worth listening to for the title alone, but P&M chief editor Nicole Krawcke keeps a tight focus on the news most important to the trades through interviews with industry leaders and in-the-field experts. One of the best things about the podcast is that it rarely runs longer than 20 minutes so it can be easily consumed in one setting.
This is a double recommendation because of the family connection involved. On the former, Tool Pros’ Brent Ridley and Billy Knoth talk about and review new tools while also discussing the best ways to use them. On the latter, Kathleen Ridley, Brent’s wife, talks about juggling a small plumbing/HVAC business, parenting and marriage.
