Mariah Fehlman

Hi guys thank you for your podcasts. I found it a year ago and really enjoy listening! I did not think that the show on jackhammers was boring. I did want to point out that jackhammers in the mining industry are called jacklegs, and the way they have to be used underground and the people who use them are incredible. I would like to hear a show about mining and the technology that has come from it. Thank You, Mariah from Nevada
