Hammer and Nails Podcast

Hammer and Nails is a twice-weekly collaboration with husband & wife team, Skip & Alison Bedell, who co-host Spike TV's Catch A Contractor with Adam Carolla. Skip, a licensed contractor, and Alison, a Probation Officer, are known for making everyone sick with how in love they are, and they love to offer relationship advice, and routinely discuss several topics like current events, DIY segment "Skip's Tips", Alison's "Random Thoughts", things that make them shout "What the F*ck?!", viewer/listener questions, and hysterical banter about what's happening in their lives. This is a raw, mostly unedited podcast with the Bedells while they record at home and on the road in the entertainment industry, and they will be sure to make you feel like you're sitting right there hanging out with them.
