Oatey Co. recently announced the launch of season 3 of “The Fix,” a podcast that sheds light on the significance of the trades while educating, inspiring and empowering the next generation of professionals to promote the longevity of the industry.

As in seasons past, each episode will feature conversations with guests who are passionate about advancing and advocating for careers in the skilled trades.

This season features a robust lineup of guests, ranging from children’s books authors Paige Knowles and Molly Elkman to trades organizations Cleveland BuildsIowa Skilled Trades and The Manufacturing Advocacy and Growth Network, as well as plumber and social media influencer Roger Wakefield.
