Feb 27, 2023

In today's episode, the first of season nine, Stacy welcomes a new co-host, Daniel Kanter. During listener Q&A, Stacy and Daniel discuss special considerations for wallpapering crooked plaster walls.

And later, Stacy and Daniel chat with Christopher Wilson, owner of the Aurora, a 1955 cruise ship he is restoring in Stockton, California. Christopher bought the Aurora off of Craigslist, and since the purchase, he's been living on the boat and working with a steady stream of volunteers to bring the ship back to life.
