Why Tall Tales & Epic Fails?

Because we've all been there. From being sent to fetch a box of sky hooks or a tin of striped paint to spilling coffee all over the instructions before beginning assembly, we've all had our moments.

If you're looking for tips on how to make the perfect mitre joint or discover secrets of master craftspeople, this is probably the wrong podcast for you. If, however, you're up for a laugh as three ordinary (in fact, very ordinary) handymen discuss the motivations, joys, and frustrations of DIY, you're in exactly the right place.

Join Shane Jacobson, his ex-Top Gear offsider, Steve Pizzati, and the mysterious Shovel as they get seriously sidetracked in their manshed.
