He shills for the companies that sponser his show. He tries to come across as a down to earth guy who's just like everyone else and it's really irritating. I've listened to his podcast a handful of times and I've never learned anything useful. Instead of telling you how to do various things, he tells you to call contractors or companies that support his show. Be prepared for lots of promotion of radiant barriers, sandblasting of pipes, siding, trex decking, etc. Do your own research on these things before you take the plunge.
