John and Sherry of Young House Love have put together an amazing podcast. The husband-wife duo out of Richmond, Virginia talk extensively about the projects that they have actually done, which are in excess of 3000, around the houses that they have owned. The shear volume of projects they have done is pretty incredible!
This podcast will make you laugh, really hard! Hosts They talk about pretty much everything under the sun and home improvement. Very entertaining, one of my favorites!
Jacy and Cindy have a great set up! They have shorter episodes (around 20 to 30 minutes in length), perfect for morning or evening commutes. Each episode they discuss in detail how to fix common household repairs and projects ranging from skylights to high-efficiency toilets. They consistently publish a new podcast every week so you will always be getting fresh info!
Danny has a fabulous website with not only his podcast episodes, but also videos with home DIY tips, as well as a multitude of other resources to help homeowners with projects of any size. All the content that Danny has put out has been exceptionally high quality and enjoyable to watch and listen to. His show has been going on for over 20 years so he must be doing something right!
When I first heard the name of this podcast it made me think of the movie the Money Pit! Unlike the movie, they discuss how to avoid getting into the situations that they found themselves in the movie! Follows a similar format to many radio shows: take calls from homeowners with questions and answer them in detail.
Brian and Paul drop tons of knowledge in the Handyguys Podcast. Their episodes are concise, to the point, and not saturated with commercials. The banter between them is also pretty entertaining too!
Gary Sullivan does a fantastic job of bringing in expert guests for discussions on a wide range of topics from sump pumps, air quality, to countertop installation. Each subject is discussed in detail and in terms that even a layman would understand, which is something most homeowners would appreciate! He takes calls from his radio audience as well, which are also aired on his own home DIY podcast.
Jeff Patterson out of Pittsburg puts out a solid solo hosted podcast. He is very good at articulating and describing some of the more complex DIY problems he runs into at his rental homes.
Straight from Mississippi Public Broadcasting is Fix It 101 (not to be mistaken with Fix It Home Improvement). Follows the same general theme as the podcast with a similar name, but typically longer episodes and more co-hosts. Great detailed information with longer episodes, usually around 45 minutes.
Of course we have to mention this home DIY podcast as well! The House At Work Home Repair Clinic starts Jim Salmon, a home inspector who hosts the Home Repair Clinic on WHAM 1180 in Rochester, NY, and Peter Schick, a local real estate salesman.
