RESTalk EP 123: The Best of RESTalk 2023 with Host Bill Spohn

Dec 5, 2023 BuildersGeneralProvidersRaters

“That’s the funny thing about time. It is only in looking back that it’s easy to connect the dots. To see exactly why everything needed to happen the way that it did”. – Rebecca Serle

Eleven episodes, 11 topics, 17 different guests, and over 5 hours of RES-Talking in 2023!

We covered a lot of ground in the RESTalk podcast in 2023, now going into our 6th year of episodes.

We hope we stimulated your thinking and moved you into action in this ever-evolving world of home energy ratings and peripheral topics.

Listen in to this fast-paced recap of the year in RESTalk, maybe you missed a detail or two in these nuggets we have mined.
