We’ve decided to change up the format of the Toolmonger podcast a bit in the new year, and we need some help to get it kicked off right. 

Here’s the skiny:  The new ‘cast will take the theme of a call-in show, but won’t happen in real time.  Instead, callers will leave a message with their question which we’ll then answer.  Why do it this way?  One reason we’ve always disliked standard tool/home-improvement-ish call-in shows is that you’re limited to the experience of the hosts, which means often you don’t receive a full answer to your question. 

In our case, if we can’t answer your question personally, we’ll pull out our (pretty impressive) Rollidex and start calling in pros, engineers, friends, and colleagues until we find the full answer.  We think it’ll make for an entertaining and informative addition to Toolmonger.

But we need your help.  We need questions for the first show, and, of course, since there’s no show yet, the show can’t generate the questions.  We’re hoping you’ll call in with some of your own to help us get started. 

Don’t be afraid to ask tough questions, either.  We’re happy to track down answers for you ranging from questions like “How do I hang a door?” to “Where do I get replacement brushes for my 1956 Stanley router?”  Or, we can even handle more esoteric questions like, “How does one drive a bulldozer?” or even “How do tool companies come up with torque specs for their drills.”

Our call-in number is (214) 296-9187.  It’s a voice mail number, so just follow the instructions to leave us your question.  We appreciate your help, and we’ll have the first podcast out in a couple of weeks!

    How about a transcript of the Q&A for those of who don’t listen to Podcasts?

    Also, this post should be flagged in the ‘podcast’ category. 🙂 I had to go digging in the archives for it.

    Myself: Actually, the ‘podcast’ category is currently reserved just for the podcasts themselves as that category feed is used for iTunes — however, when the new ‘cast commences we’ll be using a different method to provide the feed — allowing for multiple ‘casts and some other cool features.
