Line Life Podcast: 2022 International Lineman's Rodeo Week

Dec. 14, 2022
This podcast episode is devoted to interviews with competitors, spectators and supporters of the International Lineman's Rodeo Week.

Linemen from all over North America--and even from around the world--come to the International Lineman's Rodeo Week for competition and camaraderie. It's a spot where linemen and their families can connect and celebrate the line trade. 

For the 2022 Lineman's Rodeo, a record number of competitors and spectators traveled to Kansas City for the event. At the Lineman's Expo, the attendees wrapped around the top floor of the convention center, and at the BBQ, they sat at tables both inside and outside the ballroom doors. 

While we captured memories from the event in photo galleries in our Lineman's Rodeo News newsletter and in stories in our December print magazine, we are also featuring coverage from this event in our December 2022 Line Life podcast episode, which is sponsored by Huskie Tools.

During the event, we talked to not only linemen, but also supporters, organizers and exhibitors.

We look forward to seeing you next October in Kansas City.
