Josh, Dave, and Tim have been tolerating each other since high school. They share a love of all things DIY; from basic handyman skills to major home renovations. For them, learning new skills and completing projects is more than just getting things done right. It's about becoming a better man and helping others along the way. We haven't reached the mass audiences the likes of The Art of Manliness or Jocko, but we're steadily growing the You can, man. army! We hope you'll take a listen and like what you hear! What one man can do, you can do as well. You can, man!
