Introduced in the early 2000s, podcasts have been delivering a wealth of information, stories, or laughs for close to 20 years. For short daily walks or long drives in the car, today’s listeners have access to podcasts on pretty much every topic, including many areas of home building.
To celebrate International Podcast Day on Sept. 30, the BUILDER team compiled eight podcasts for builders to get the latest industry news, improve their marketing, explore new designs, learn a new construction process, or hear from some key industry leaders. Check them out below.
