The Painting & Decorating Show on Fix Radio provides tradespeople with vital insight on starting, running and building their own business.

The weekly, hour-long radio show (and podcast) is hosted by Joel Bardall, a working painter and decorator.

Joel provides his honest point of view on the challenges facing the industry, and comes with an encyclopedic knowledge of products and techniques needed by the modern painter and decorator.

He is joined on the show by regular co-host Todd Von Joel, a painter and decorator working in London, and a cast of industry talking heads to debate everything from the use of social media, to hiring staff, the power of branding and making sure you get paid.

 Joel and Todd also speak passionately about stamping out tool theft and improving mental health within the trades.
