In part two of our special two-part podcast, we join Steve the Spindoctor again for a day in the life of an appliance repairer. Back in the van, Dave talks to Steve Neil about sausage rolls, Instagram, what he’s found clogging washing machines, and the challenges that small businesses face today. Steve fixes a botched dishwasher installation to the amusement of a very young Restarter. This week, we also hear from people at a Restart Party in Camden for an insight into what people really do when their white goods break.
Steve names two types of people: those who throw things away, and those who get their things repaired. But here at Restart, we’d say there are also people that try to fix things themselves. With advice and inspiration from people like Steve, it becomes just that little bit easier to move into that third category.
Be sure to catch up on Part 1 if you missed it last week!
