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 …
- Great history and lessonsGreat history and lessons
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!

- Started great…Started great…
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 …
- Go Get To WorkGo Get To Work
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.

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.
- Hands of prideHands of pride
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 …

Love my Origin gis, love what the company is all about. Pete is a great storyteller and inspires us to get out there and do something hard because it’s worth it!
- Where is the shame?Where is the shame?
I listened to my first Podcast today with Peter Roberts and Brian Littlefield and the discussion about how the workforce is competing against our own government was spot on! The idea of assistance helping the down and out has become a system of entitlement and comfort instead of shame and discomfort. I’m not one to sit and listen to people chitty-chat but I enjoyed the discussion.

I first heard about you and Origin from the jocko podcast. Been a huge fan of your products and podcast since!

Great podcast. I enjoyed it. This one hit home. I can relate to many things said. Good to see I’m not the only one. Future subscriber here. Looking forward to more food for my brain.

I first encountered Pete Roberts on the Jocko Podcast. That was an awesome interview/conversation between the two that gave a good overview of how Pete got to where he is today. His ingenuity and work ethic are something to be respected. I've also tried out the Origin Gii's and love it and as well as their customer service. This podcast is worth the time investment for anyone who believes in an honest days work and putting yourself outthere to become part of their community and trying …

Great podcast. Pete Roberts is a great resource for aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs, as well as folks who want to do more than sit back and cruise. His story is not just about profits; it’s about passion, purpose, the struggle, and helping those in your own community.
