Carpenters and craft, friendship and rivalry: Wally is building a mansion for a dot-com multimillionaire in the Silicon Valley of California. As the dot-com's stock keeps rising, the size of the house - and the owner's ego - keep growing. Wally and his colorful crew may be into something that's over their heads. When little guys work for bigshots, who gets nailed? From bungling to burglary, from demolishing concrete to racing beltsanders, from love of tools to falling in love, everyone will encounter Wally's Laws of Construction - or are they Laws of Life? Each house, it seems, is a miracle. Joe Cottonwood is a contractor in the Silicon Valley of California where he has been building houses - and fixing homes - for over 30 years. He is the author of FAMOUS POTATOES and other novels.

Ruokola² on musiikkiin ja luovaan taiteeseen keskittyvä podcast. Podcastin vieraiden yhteinen nimittäjä on luovuus - oli se sitten musiikin, stand-up -komedian tai muun vastaavan parissa. Vieraana on ollut muusikoita, koomikoita sekä myös muilta aloilta henkilöitä kertomassa heidän jutustaan ja juttelemassa asiasta, sekä huomattavan paljon sen vierestä. Pääsääntöisesti jaksoissa on joka kerta uusi vieras, mutta tarpeen tullen saatan taivuttaa tätä sääntöä. Podcastin tarkoitus on avata "luomisen tuskaa" kuuntelijalle, joskin rennolla keskustelulla ja huumorilla höystettynä. Podcastin juontaja toimii Minutian-yhtyeen rumpali Antti Ruokola.
