So inspiring to hear Petes stories. He’s capable and works to solve problems, even if it means procuring his own means of production or supply lines. This is what America needs Keep up the great work
- Good info, lack of consistencyGood info, lack of consistency
Good content but poor consistency. Previous podcast they said they’d release a new episode every two weeks or so. Haven’t seen a new one since April. Disappointing
- Much respectMuch respect
We need more voices like this who are proud of their American heritage. More voices like this who are not going to buckle to the creeping Marxism that is ever accelerating in our nation. I’m thankful to have discovered this.

Two points taken from the podcast: Keep moving forward. Always have a backup plan. Figuring the latter supports the former, Will start by (working towards) always having a backup plan in order to move forward.

Excellent podcast. Bringing manufacturing jobs back to the USA. Love listening to these guys. My only wish is they need to produce more episodes! 1/19/21: they’re back! I LOVE THIS PODCAST. You will not find anyone more authentic than Pete Roberts and Brian Littlefield.

It’s MLK day 2021 and I just discovered this podcast and listed to the 1st episode. That episode was recorded in 2018 and it blew me away with the wisdom shared. I want everyone to listen to the statement made on the 1st episode! Ok, Now I will go and enjoy listening and discovering the rest of the episodes on this podcast. I see there is a long list. I recognize some names I am already familiar with Like Echo Charles.

This is all about bringing back something that was great in our country but fell away. You will learn a lot about yourself and your business whatever it is. I can tell you this isn't about living in the past, it is about building a new future. I love the theme, the history, and it is entertaining. Great work Pete!
Thank you for shining light on the roots of this beautiful country especially my home state of Maine and for giving me a reason to be proud of my scarred and dirty hands that I sometimes feel self conscious of. Going out to chop more wood now! 💪🏽
What Pete and Origin are doing is honorable. Bringing back manufacturing to the United States is what we need. The greed that has taken over the world and moved manufacturing out of the United States is shameful. I’ve worked in manufacturing, my father has worked in manufacturing etc. I’ve worked for companies that moved the work out of the the United States and just recently they went bankrupt. Karma maybe. But I believe in Pete and Origin. They are doing what is right. The podcast is very inte …

To: porterchilsen: Whoever you are, you clearly are a complete ignoramus! This is your review of the podcast on Originmaine.com: Seems this guy is trying to create a 1950s America. White owners and white labor selling to white America — and celebrating it. Their challenge: how will their business model work in 21st century America especially if they don’t recognize they have a problem? News flash, jackass: this has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with the country that you pres …

Love listening to these podcasts, and Brians phrases (Living the dream!) One of the most inspirational I’ve listened to in a long time and I really appreciate the hard work and dedication you guys put into this and everything you do at Origin. USA forever!

I keep hearing people talk about podcasts and what they listen to etc. I’m a Jocko fan, Military member, BJJ enthusiast, and most importantly I’m a Mainiac. This tells more about the world and then adds the flavor of the Maine worker, Amazing.

Thank you for the podcast, what this country needs more than ever.
Your podcast is so inspiring. Thank you so much for the insight in what it takes to be successful in America, the greatest country on planet earth. Much respect to what you are building with Origin. Will support the brand and concept all I can. a Greatful American
- Glad to have you back!Glad to have you back!
I got this notification on my phone of a new episode I opened it INSTANTLY!!! Happy to have you back on the mic!
Started this podcast after hearing about Origin from Jocko Podcast… Pete the American and Brian the brains of the machine are a great duo and compliment each other well. Straight forward talk and advice. They explain a way, not “the” way, to build a successful entrepreneurship. I dig it…
- Can't stop listeningCan't stop listening
I've been geeking out on this podcast lately. I love everything about it. It's so pro-Maine. I dig the history, the examples of hard working men and women, the practical guidance. It's inspiring. Maine is a tough place to run a successful business. Manufacturing has all but left the State leaving behind a lot of hurt and hopelessness. Pete and his team are returning hope. Hands and daylight is about light shining in the darkness.
- American MadeAmerican Made
Always love hearing the journey of Pete and crew into manufacturing American made products.
Motivated. These fine gentlemen will educate you on all the glories of being a hardworking American. Inspire you by pulling you right into the supply chain of cotton farmers, denim dyers, leather tanners, and jujitsu rollers. Most of all, they will honor your sacrifice of a hard days work by making sure that you know that you are helping to take back America. All this through family, sacrifice, hand shakes, patriots, beards, boots, and denim jeans. Motivated isn’t the proper word… I am getting …

Peter and friends brings down a true honest conversation about hard working… no more to be said.!

Hands and Daylight podcast has been a great addition to my subscription list. And it’s a pretty short list. It’s great to hear about the aggressive pursuit of a USA-all-the-way supply chain in a package that is both entertaining and informative.
Awesome. I wish I’d found this years ago.

It took me 12 minutes into the first episode to recognize this is the greatest podcast ever! Listening to it on a job site working today (July 4th). The work never stops!

I love this podcast! I found it while listening to a few other podcasts that have a connection to Origin, and I have been enjoying it ever since. Great topics, great hosts, and great stories! If you haven’t already left this review to listen to an episode, go now…I’ll wait. Keep up the great work Pete and Brian and all the folks at Origin!
- I was fourI was four
That was awe inspiring. I’ve never written a review for the many podcast I have listened to. This was by far the hardest but most meaningful one. I had to stop listening a couple of times because I couldn’t imagine what she had gone through at such a young age, the same age as my youngest son. For she and her mother to have the outlook they have on life is astounding to say the least. This one is a must listen for everyone and I intend to replay it for my kids.
- Work EthicWork Ethic
This pod is worth its weight in gold if you know that hard work is the real engine that drives a prosperous nation. God bless Pete and the whole Origin team.
- Great ShowGreat Show
My first exposure to Hands and Daylight was when I heard Pete interviewed on the Jocko Podcast. I had very little interest in hearing about manufacturing, until I heard the passion about his company which oozes out of all of Pete’s pores. Now I can’t get enough. I love learning about denim or the first factory in America or listening to Pete and Brian talk about their successes, as well as failures. Keep up the great work guys. Love your products as well.
- Go get to workGo get to work
Everyone in America’s workforce should be listening to this podcast. What they are doing at Origin takes some serious guts! I am honored to get to listen to their story as it happens. The podcast itself is very unscripted and natural yet not lacking in preparation. You are not listening to broadcasters. You are listening to men with a dream who have a lot of work to do and are cutting out the time to share their day to day struggles with us. Now stop reading these reviews, click play, and go get …

I have started to look at all of my past mistakes in business as “tuition payments in life” thanks to this amazing podcast. Not only are you able to see the growth and struggles of a up and coming company, but you a e also treated to some amazing history lessons too. The history podcasts are really well done and among my favorites. If you had the opportunity to listen to Jeff bezos work through all of his challenges and achievements as Amazon was growing wouldn’t you want that? Here is that same …

Been binge listening to these guys. Love what they are all about. Love US made businesses. Love the perspective. Keep up the good work
- Listen. You’ll learn something.Listen. You’ll learn something.
As a fellow New Englander, Jits practitioner and someone who works for a domestic manufacturer selling American made products to major retailers, this podcast hits home on all fronts for me. My favorite episodes are when Pete/B.Little discuss the behind-the-scenes business of Origin. Negotiations, growth challenges, thought processes about entering B&M and stories from buyer meetings all keep me hooked. Their transparency is refreshing. Keep em’ coming!

This podcast was absolutely incredible to start out, but the last 3 episodes have been a pure struggle to listen to. I know that there have been big events going on with camp and personal things. However, I feel like you shouldn’t just make a sub-par podcast just for the sake of making one. This is the only podcast that I have listened to every single one, and while I used to look forward to getting inspired on my drive to work Monday morning, not feeling it now. I’m going to give it one more sh …

I listened to every single episode in the last two weeks while getting ready to move to a new city. It was motivation for me to not use my two weeks off to “cruise” as Echo Charles would say, but instead to get up every day and get after. To use my own hands and daylight to build things and ready myself for the move. Those that say the American dream is dead need to look no further than Pete and Brian and the whole Origin team to realize that they’re wrong. It never died. It never had a foot in …

This is one of my favorite podcasts. I’ve been a subscriber since the first episode and always look forward to the weekly download! Pete and Brian have a great banter that keeps you engaged in the conversation and the guests have been unique, interesting, and insightful. I don’t own my own business but listening to different, true entrepreneurs has been inspiring. I even was able to get my wife interested in the podcast with BAREFOOT AND PREGNANT, the episode where Pete shared a conversation wit …

Pete Roberts is the man. I have a lot of respect for the actions he's decided to take as a real man in life. This show is the real deal. Find inspiration, and turn it into your own practice. Lot's of valuable lessons here. Much gratitude and support to you and the crew for all the magnificent things you do.
This man is on a mission! Fantastic podcast, fantastic content!! Making America great again isn’t a political slogan, Pete is doing it! Manufacturing here in the USA at whatever the cost!

An inspiring podcast about American ingenuity and work ethic. While Pete gets worked up at times, he brings on some really interesting and inspiring people. I really enjoy the point of view he brings.

Episode 22 hit me. My father growing up worked triples as a prison guard and my mom worked full time. I spent a ton of time with my great grand father. I roamed the streets of Providence like any other kid in the 80’s. I remember my grandfather working as a custom tailor in downtown PVD and coming home and working all night tailoring on the side to earn. This episode was just awesome. Makes me relive the pride I had in my parents and grandparents and all the hard work they put in to provide. Kee …
