Inaugural Back Porch Session

Sipping on Half Acre Beer and nibbling on sweets from Gene's Sausage Shop
My friend's Carey and John came down to Chicago for a visit last weekend from Madison, Wisconsin. Little did they know that they would be ambushed and forced to participate in a podcast. Granted, they are friends with me so they should always expect the unexpected. We had a lovely conversation sitting on the porch on a beautiful spring day sipping on Half Acre Beer.
I wanted to talk to them because they both are makers and designers. They build and rehab homes, brew their own beer and support their local community. I thought it would be interesting to hear their perspective on DIY and shopping local. 
We cover a wide array of topics such as: design, doing it yourself, supporting our community, sustainable design, brewing beer, and getting kicked in the head. I hope you enjoy our conversation. Please note it may take a moment for the podcast to load.
