The guest is philosopher and mechanic Matthew B. Crawford. He is currently a fellow at the University of Virginia's Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture. He owns and operates Shockoe Moto, an independent motorcycle repair shop in Richmond, Virginia. He discusses his book "Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry into the Value of Work." Crawford believes the manual trades offer the best hope of self-reliance and satisfaction at a time when many feel out of touch in an abstract world. Craftsmanship and the art of making things and fixing things is work that can not become obsolete or outsourced.
