Share this episode:

If you are a Lineman and you are passionate about this trade, then I’m sure you enjoy learning about our history.

Alan Drew is the author of an amazing book about the origins of our trade called The American Lineman. I interviewed Alan on episode 64 of Powerline Podcast if you’re interested in his story.

Brady Hansen and I have teamed up and over the course of the next few months we’ll be brining you a chapter by chapter reading of The American Lineman so you can come to understand more about where we began and where we are today.
