Let’s talk construction. Or listen, actually.
Etymology101: Ben Hammersly, a journalist, coined the word “podcast” in 2004 as a mashup of iPod + broadcast. To celebrate the term’s nearly 20th birthday, we offer a glimpse of construction content from the past two decades.
Construction industry influencers and contributors abound, making it challenging to hand-pick a subjective list of top podcasts. Regardless, we gave it a shot; we award two pod-thumbs up to the following podcasters.
Take a listen.Follow them. If you like, send us a few of your top picks to add to the list.
