Why do we have such an interest in construction podcasts? Podcasts link people with specific interests. You no longer have to settle for the same news, traffic, and weather segments over and over again. You don’t have to worry about large corporations controlling content behind the scenes. It's all substance and, chances are, you can find a podcast that completely fits your interests. Another great thing about podcasts is that they're on demand, so you can listen when you can and not miss half of a show because you weren't in your car at the right time. Simply download them and listen on your phone or tablet whenever you feel like it.
Check out the 4 finalists below and submit your vote before June 1st at 11:59:59pm PST! As a reminder, a full year ad placement on our website is up for grabs, so your vote can help these podcasts grow their fanbase!
The 2016 Best Construction Podcast contest champion is back for round two. Since the “Trio,” which is comprised of Rob McKinney (@conappguru), James Benham (@JamesMBenham), and Josh Bone (@BIM2theBone), first started their podcast in early 2016, they made an immediate impact on the platform. All 3 hosts are part of the JB Knowledge team, which created products like Smart Bid Net, Smart Compliance, Smart Reality, and Smart Insight.
Each episode features discussion around latest construction and technology news stories, as well as a special guest from around the industry, including many from construction technology companies, like Procore, Autodesk, and PlanGrid.
You can catch new episodes of the ConTechTrio podcast on a weekly basis by visiting their page on Spreaker. Each episode typically runs between 45 minutes to an hour.
The Lien Zone Podcast, hosted by Miami Construction Lawyer Alex Barthet (@thelienzone), is making its second appearance in the contest. Each episode, Barthet gives great legal tips for contractors in order to help them get paid and create better construction documents. Recent topics have included “Does Your Contract Need to Be in Writing to be Enforceable?” and “Claims, Bonds, Insurance – What You Need to Know.” Recent episodes have been around 10 minutes in length, so you can gain some valuable legal insight without making a large commitment.

After a hiatus from last year’s contest, Anthony Booths’ The Contracting Coachcast (@anthonybooth) is back in this year’s contest. Now up to a whopping 700+ episodes, this 5 episode per week podcast features a large variety of topics to help contractors’ build their businesses. Recent episodes have covered insurance requirements, safety, communication, and leadership.
Each episode is around 15 minutes and can be found directly on the Contracting Coach’s website.
This year’s newcomer to the contest and our only mini-series is Andrew Weinrich’s Predicting Our Future (@andrewsroadmaps). In this series, Weinrich, a self-described “Serial Entrepreneur,” dives deep into the latest innovations of single and multi-family residential construction. Less of a talk show and more of a scripted and edited feature on each topic, each of the six episodes of Predicting Our Future includes audio clips from industry experts on each topic.
Each episode runs for around 30 minutes and can be found on iTunes and directly on the podcast’s website. Weinrich has also been selected as the keynote speaker for the 2017 Professional Builder’s Housing Giants Conference, which takes place on October 18th and 19th in Paradise Valley, AZ.
