Please find some links and notes from the 2 Regular Guys Podcast. Every year the 2 Regular Guys share their thoughts on 10 things they would like to see happen in this new year. And a little review of last year’s hopes and predictions. Did any of the 2018 ideas actually happen? Our regular listeners know this, but 2 Regular Guys are all about garment decorating, a bit of fun, and no rants or lectures or selling. We are not doing this for our employers, but rather for our industry. Since February 2013, The 2 Regular Guys have been the first and the most listened to garment decorating industry podcast on this planet! We are humbled by all of you tuning in each week. We work hard to bring you information that will make your business better, and our industry better.

The goal is to openly discuss some issues, gain insight and make strides toward change. Kristine, being a seasoned 2 Regular Guys guest, is going to be the host and moderator of a panel of up to 3 other women and we need your help finding just the right guests. The first installment is "Is It Different For Women in the Industry?" and we want your suggestions for the best guest to join Kristine for this discussion.

Only one school we know of offering a screen printing degree and honestly traditional education is dying. How about a 3 to 6 week boot camp supported by printers needing employees, not by manufacturer trying to sell machines. Support the local high school programs.
