Welcome to the Petzinger Brothers Podcast website. The five of us were raised on a 5 acre plot of oddly shaped farmland outside the small city of Caldwell, Idaho. We were raised by our father, a German immigrant, and our mother, daughter of an Air Force family.

Dad worked as a German, Drafting, Russian, and Math teacher at the local high school, but was actually an abstract artist whose canvas was the farm, whose paints were construction materials and livestock, and whose brushes were shovels, trowels, buckets, tape measures, and hammers.

Mom worked to keep the gears of the family running as smoothly as possible, but was actually a runway model with great fashion sense whose wardrobe was conjured up from thrift store shelves and hangers, and whose catwalks were the hallways of church, sidewalks in the park, and the aisles of markets.

It has been decades since we all lived together on that small patch of land in the countryside of western Idaho. We have all gone our separate ways. So, to not lose to the inescapable passage of time, the memories, stories, mishaps, and adventures that formed our unique upbringing, we have set about to make permanent our recollections, thoughts, and experiences in the form of these podcasts.

Technology has rendered the distance between us immaterial. The five of us gather together as though around a virtual dining table and commit our conversations to digital permanence. It is our sincere hope that hearing our podcasts will be as much fun for listeners as it is for us making them. To our posterity we say, this is your heritage. To our friends, family, and listeners we say, enjoy.
