Oatey launches podcast to support trades

Written on: February 2, 2022 by ICM

Oatey Co. has released its first-ever podcast, “The Fix,” to shed light on the significance of the trades, while educating, inspiring and empowering the next generation of professionals.

Each episode features a conversation with thought leaders in skilled trades, such as plumbing, manufacturing, electrical, HVAC and commercial construction. Season One guests discuss solutions to combat the growing labor shortage and demonstrate how rewarding and lucrative skilled trades careers are. They offer career advice, jobsite experiences, how to overcome common misconceptions, promoting diversity and more.

“At Oatey, we’re passionate about the skilled trades, and we’re committed to doing our part as a manufacturer to ensure the vitality of this essential industry,” says Katherine Lehtinen, Oatey’s Senior VP of Brand & Digital Marketing, who co-hosts “The Fix” alongside Technical Applications Manager & Master Plumber Doug Buchan.

“The Fix is intended to be more than a podcast, but rather a community,” continues Lehtinen. “If our conversations motivate even one individual to give the trades a try, then we’re one step closer to reaching our collective goal.”

The first three episodes of Season One are now available on all major podcasting platforms. New episodes will be released on Wednesdays. Visit: https://www.oatey.com/podcasts
