Podcast Episode 2: Plumbers
My second podcast episode is live! Find it on Google Podcasts, iTunes, Spotify and many others
My podcast, called Explore the Trades, is a way to learn about great careers in skilled trades and construction. These careers combine short-term education with long-term financial gains.
In episode 2 we cover Plumbers. We speak to the coordinator of the Saint Paul union apprenticeship program and to both a commercial plumber (working in large places like schools, hospitals and commercial spaces) and a residential plumber who works mostly, but not exclusively, in people’s homes.
- Rick Gale, Plumbing Program Coordinator, Saint Paul College
- Samantha Geehan, 3rd year plumbing apprentice
- Dave Janecky, owner of Janecky Plumbing and Heating
