J&M Carving Creations – Appreciation! – 5 Stars – Hey Guys, thank you very much for the follow on Instagram.  I really enjoy your podcast and I learn each and every time I listen.  Each of you have a great amount of knowledge that you aren’t afraid of giving to the rest of us simple folk.  You guys do indeed make a difference.  It is hearing you guys deliver spot on content with a bit of humor now and then…grin.  I have had my side business for about 4 years and content like yours allows me to give my own work the “thousand foot view” to see where I can improve.  Now if I can just get down from this TV antenna I can get back to work…LOL.  Thank you for all you do and keep up the great work and remember…stay dusty my friends.  Mike Craft

 aarontwas – Favorite Woodworking Podcast! – 5 Stars – I queue up podcasts while listening, and usually I’ll listen to one of a certain show, then another show.  When it comes to queuing up The Dusty Life, I’ll line up multiple shows to binge through, and I do not do that with any other podcasts for the most part.  I’ll almost be sad when I’m caught up.  Oh well, won’t stop me from listening to new episodes when they come out!
