I think, when they found Instagram to be such an easy photo-sharing system, and just as great a welding community as this, they shifted their focus.

I do like Instagram, but I don't use or want a smartphone, and doing it from a laptop is slightly tedious, so I've not been lured in the way they have. It's still a bit of work. I do it, and enjoy it, but it doesn't distract me from spending time here.

I listen to every episode Monday-Tuesday on my work drive. Haven't missed one yet. Jonathan has posted in this very thread a few times.

I don't care for the how to parts about youtube, instagram or business as much as hearing how the guests got into welding. The stories are the best part for me.

I learned how to weld at night, but not last night. (despite how my weld looks)

Good. I wasn't intoxicated yet when Roy asked me that question... :roll: I did not expect it to take as long as it did. We talked for over three hours to get the hour and changed that got used. Having fun the whole time, but if I had anticipated, I'd have waited a bit to take my prescriptions, and had fewer beers.

Shucks I'm old enough to remember when 2 tin cans and string was hi tech stuff...no I'm not the guy who invented the wheel...im the guy who poked the hole in it and stuck a log through it, my brother Axel got jealous and said he made it he was always Moms favorite so she named it after him

They ought to do some behind the scenes for the podcast of some of the weird and funny moments. Same with Jodys videos. Have a montage of mistakes and issues and funny moments just to show another side of the welding trade
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

An "outakes" episode would be funny. I think I'll suggest it, but I'm not sure Roy keeps the unused stuff.

I roasted Kathleen Porco over that "water in space" thing, when I should have kept my mouth shut. I wasn't wrong, but it was very rude, and I'm sorry I did that.

I wish that had been an "outtake".

I do participate as and when I can. Steve is right, I have A LOT of irons in the fire and that makes it very hard to respond to posts here. I don't mean to neglect this thread or even the members here. I just have to pick when and where I dedicate my time.

Also, as Steve said, I still come on to the forum to do things behind the scenes. Not as much as I used to but I do still try to pull my weight behind the scenes.

As for the emails. We do get quite a lot of emails and they are usually forwarded to each of us (Jody and myself) but I don't manage them myself. Feel free to contact me on which email it was and I will get back to you. superiorweldandfab@gmail.com

I'm hoping for an April fools version. Have Bob Clagett on to discuss the new wood filler for tig that the 3d printing community stumbled on or some such foolishness.
