I just uploaded another steamy installment of our appliance repair podcast, which you can download here.
With this episode, we’re trying out a new format. Instead of talking about a range of different topics in the appliance world, we focused on one topic.
This episode is the first of a trilogy wherein the Samurai explains his famous 12 Laws of Appliance Repair which have enlightened grasshoppers all over the planet. The Samurai discusses the first four laws in this episode.
