IAQ Radio Classic: Pete Consigli & The Z-man – A History of the Restoration Industry Parts 1-3

Air Date: 8-24-2018|Episode 514

This weeks IAQ Radio+ episode flashes back to interviews with Pete Consigli and the Z-man that conclude our series on the “History of Restoration” from the viewpoint of these two living legends. The interview started out as a retrospective conversation about their longtime relationship that spanned almost 4 decades, it ended up being a priceless discussion on the  “History of Restoration”, from their perspective in the trenches. These shows were personal, insightful and controversial at times, but most of all come from the heart with a spirit of setting the record straight on many of the industry’s misnomers and folklore! Listen in as two of the industry’s most well known and colorful personalities sit down to reflect on their professional life together as they come to the realization that in their twilight years there is still much to be done and their “work” is still in progress! Join us for a peak into Consigli and Zlotnik’s Restoration Journey with a destination yet to be realized.
