John & Tim's State of the State
John and Tim are guest-less on this episode and while they may feel naked, they aren't afraid. We talk about the construction industry as inflation, gas and material prices are up. Yet, there are some companies that have decided to invest during the pandemic, and we are seeing that as doors are starting to open back up for customer visits and training. One such visit was Rinnai, which has invested in domestic tankless manufacturing. You'll hear from Rinnai president, Frank Windsor. We also talk about the most expensive and cheapest areas of the country for home improvements. A lot of nuggets in this week's convo. Photo courtesy of C.J.

The boys hit the airwaves with one of their favorites, Jan Andersson, President of MrPEX.

Music, Minnesota, Molecular Musings with MrPEX and maybe even a little Rock Camp for Dad discussion are the focus of this week's NDY Podcast.
