Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Aug 22, 2016

Hi and Thanks for listening to the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast.  For episode 5 we were going to be interviewing Joel Bushmann, but he had a few rush things come up and couldn't make it.  Which was completely fine and we understand that jobs come first!  We reached out to Isaac Carrion, ICWeld on Instagram, last minute and he was happy to join in.  This interview was a lot of fun to record and we hope that you enjoy it just as much, so download, put in those earbuds, and drop your hood!
