As a homeowner with a older house, The Handyguys Podcast appealed to me almost instantly. Hosted by Brian and Paul, they do a very good job at bringing do-it-yourself, homeowner advice in a neat, organized podcast. The first thing that I liked was that they went right into a question by a listener, avoiding the usual, “How was you weekend, Paul?” These two get to the subject of the show without unnecessary chit chat before hand. The next thing I thought was great was the length of the show. At a little under thirty minutes, it was the perfect time for the subject.

I downloaded and listened to three shows and they seem to follow the same format. First they take one question by a listener and answer it in detail. Next, they take the subject of the show, like in the last show which was prefabricated basements, and talk about the pro’s and con’s of such as system. That’s it. The show than is over.  And since each show has a description, it is easy to find a show speaks of an area that interests the home owner.

That being said, I don’t think this show will appeal to anyone who is not a DYI person, but if you are, give it a show. Good going Brian and Paul!
