Topic: After the mining Boom

Segment: Chit Chat

Chit chat is a new segment, where my friend Nathan Cooper from and I discuss and issue that’s currently circulating the news, or current affairs.
Nathan runs a plumbing company in Brisbane Australia and he’s a wealth of knowledge and experience on many interesting topics. These podcasts are 100% unrehearsed. We literally choose a topic to talk about and have the discussion. They’re designed to break up the format a little, so let us know what you think in the show notes.

Co-host: Nathan Cooper from Citi Plumbing Brisbane

In the news lately there was a discussion about young tradies that were working the mining boom and what has happened to them since the mines have taken a downturn.

Here’s the article 

It’s an interesting read as it talks about young people that have worked in the mines in the midst of the Australian mining boom. They were making huge amounts of money and living the fly in, fly out lifestyle, with little expenses, then once they lost those jobs, they were forced to face a reality that not many of them ever had.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this podcast and let me know if you dig the ‘Chit Chat format’.

I have been listening to the pod casts for a few months now, I can't get enough of all the awesome content that you guys provide. Especially when you guys deliver it from a trade perspective which helps out a lot. Keep up the good work and hopefully one day I can afford one of the trade training trips.
