March 15, 2024
Corry Ruch, a power line technician for Hydro One, and Susan Blaser, a lead line technician training program coordinator at MCC, share their stories of working in the line trade.

As a followup to our narrated audio story, "Training Women on the Line" as part of our "In Case You Missed It" series on Podbean, we are featuring interviews with two special women who have made their mark on the line trade for this episode of the Line Life Podcast.

The first interview highlights Susan Blaser, the lead line technician program coordinator at Metropolitan Community College-Kansas City, who spent 21 years at Kansas City Power & Light (now Evergy) as a journeyman lineworker and in the training department before joining MCC to prepare the next generation of lineworkers for careers in the line trade. 

The second interview features Corry Ruch, a power line technician for Hydro One and an International Lineman's Rodeo competitor who has been working in the field for the last 35 years.
