Fresh WP Goodness...

chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip...

but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast.

So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife.

Our latest episodes...

32 – Tom Usborne from GeneratePress

This is an episode that I really wanted to do. Generate Press is a WordPress theme that I’ve been using for quite a while now, and it’s my theme of choice. The options that it presents are powerful and yet the theme itself if very lightweight. Hooks galore, tasteful defaults, in short a great WordPress theme.

31 – What the heck are WooCommerce doing?

Today we had a carefully considered and mature debate about the removal of the 50% yearly discount on Woocommerce extensions. We also recorded today’s podcast which … erm… is not entirely like that. LISTENER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED. That’s not because we use rude words… Nah, it’s simply that no-one can resist a warning and we don’t have an interesting guest for you this week.

30 – Jack McConnell from Made with Fuel

Today we have the hugely talented, young and successful Jack McConnell from Made with Fuel on the show.

Made with Fuel is one-man WordPress web design and development agency based in Bath in the UK that focus on Websites, Online Stores and Membership Sites.

He also makes plugins like Better Notifications for WordPress among others. In this episode he shares his experience of that.

29 – Being an online marketing consultant with Jim Galiano

How do we introduce Jim Galiano? Galiano (you need to say that like you’re Robert De Niro), New Yorker accent, grandfather in the boxing business, connections with entertainers. We know what you’re thinking… mafia support… Jim is an online consultant and author who started years ago and has loads to share.

28 – How to stay relevant in WordPress with Eric Hamm

This theme then transitioned into the very popular Dynamik Website Builder (a customizable Child theme for the Genesis Framework) and Genesis Extender (a tool to help customize other Genesis Child theme). “Yeah dude now we’re talking… Frameworks are cosmic!”. Years of blissful happiness ensued.

27 – The WP community with Paul Lacey

Today we rejoice! We have that nice Paul Lacey with us! We are in the WordPress Community! Let’s hold hands and sing and dance around the podcasty campfire… Ah, no, no wait, that’s too disturbing! In truth, this episode is about Paul’s 10 plus year journey working with WordPress.

26 – Turning your web design business around with Chantal Edouard-Betsy

Chantal, from 1daywebs, turned her website design business away from the tedium long drawn out projects to the heart fluttering thrills of one day web builds. She’s never looked back. D’ya fancy some of that too?

25 – Beaver Themer with Justin Busa and Robby McCullough

Today we welcome back Robby and Justin from Beaver Builder. The last time they joined us was for our Christmas special. This time it just feels like Christmas. If you didn’t know already the Beaver Builder team have just released their Beaver Themer extension.

24 – We have a plugin idea, how do we get customers?

This week we talk to not one, but two lovely developers (Nathan Tyler and Natalie MacLees) from California who have a really interesting take on launching their plugin. Their new plugin, Simply Schedule Appointments is launching BEFORE it’s ready!

23 – The price of using WordPress

Today we talked about the price of using WordPress. No, it’s not a long sob story about how the wife and kid left us! Those trailer park days are behind us now!
The topic came out of a Facebook discussion around a plugin release. It got us thinking about our expectations as “professional” builders of websites.

22 – Amir Helzer, CEO of Toolset and WPML

In this episode (drum roll please) we had the great honor of talking to Amir Helzer. Amir is the CEO of OnTheGoSystems known for WP-Types’ Toolset, the WPML multilanguage plugin and also ICanLocalize.
Yes, indeed, how did we manage that? More to the point, how did he manage that?

21 – Can we compete with Wix Weebly SquareSpace and Shopify?

We hate to say it, but DIY website building solutions are getting more attractive all the time. They offer an empowering solution to the “I want a website” problem. Are we facing extinction?

"WP Builds is the pub WordPress podcast. Easy to listen to, great advice and a good place to catch up and talk nonsense. I love it."

vaughan

Vaughan Simons

"WP Builds has rapidly become my favourite WordPress podcast. I love its thoughtful discussions about so many aspects of working with WP, combined with an irreverent sense of humour. And it's incredible to realise that Nathan and David play the cheesy closing music live at the end of each episode with the accompaniment of the WP Builds House Band. That's real dedication."

richard

Richard Aronson

"There’s a lot of great WordPress information floating around on the internet, almost too much. Instead of freaking out, trying to find it all, I’ve settled on a few podcasts they really keep me informed. WPBuilds is at the top of my list. Nathan and David do a great job hosting. Plus the cheesy music makes me feel all warm inside."

"I love WP Builds because it gives me WP news so I don't have to read WP Tavern. David and Nathan invariably interview the creators of the tools I love the most, and that's also great and so useful. Plus, WP Builds has the absolute BEST intro music of any podcast in the world. AND they make me laugh. And last but by no means least, I won a lifetime Project Huddle subscription in the latest WP Builds amazing contest! Woop-woop! What's not to love! Listen up, you crazy fools. You NEED WP-Builds."

Kyle Van Deusen

"WP Builds has helped me grow and expand my business. I learn so much, and love having new friends "across the pond". So throw another shrimp on the barby, or whatever you say over there."

"Podcasts bore me, so I seldom listen to them if any at all. To be honest, WP Builds podcasts are the only podcasts I've listened to for the past several months. All the best guys"

"WP Builds has the right mix of high value content and god-awful jokes and music. What's not to love?"

paul

Paul W. Pyle

"I only manage four websites, so why would I want to listen to WPBuilds? Well...for the techy news; the witty repertoire; the great information; the great guests; and to support two guys who are always willing to give of themselves to help someone like me! Lift a pint!"

athlone

Athlone Harris-Compton

"WP Builds is Really good fun, informative, useful to almost everyone in the WordPress ecosystem and above all hosted by two genuine guys. It's my favourite work related podcast!"

dave

Dave Toomey

"You know that feeling in winter when you get into bed just after you've put on crisp clean sheets and the electric blanket is set just right? That's the feeling I get listening to Nathan & David on the WPBuilds podcast. The excellent content and banter is a surprising bonus. Love it."

What an ugly man!

Nathan Wrigley

"It's utter rubbish!"

David Waumsley

David Waumsley

"I agree with what Nathan said!"
