Shop Talk finds Andrew missing and the insane results that ensue!
Jason Goldberg of Old City Tattoo in Philly comes up to the room and proceeds to tell some mind blowing stories about tat history, killer wrestling knowledge and freakin' kick-ass music industry stories. All that in one episode and the promise of more insane stories in the future.

Shop talk kicks your ass with some dragons, too. No bullshit. No LIES.

This is a great, long podcast full of stories as Nick and Will talk to Zac Scheinbaum in the last of the NY trip podcasts. Zac has released a book featuring the talents of Grime and Chris O'Donnell. Unfortunately sold out at this time, if you can find it anywhere you should definitely check it out.
Porter and Andrew join up for the Shop Talk, too, of course!
This one was a real treat for Nick, and in turn all of you bullshitters, as Nick sits down with Chris Grosso on his New York trip. Chris is an executive producer over at VICE where he's worked on amzing shows from Epicly Later'd to Munchies. So much awesome stuff that if you haven't heard of, you need to.
They talk tons of tattoos as well, but as usual you'll also get your Shop Talk fix if you stick around. Enjoy!
Another episode from Nick's trip up to Kings Ave. in NY city. Justin Weatherholz sits down with Nick to share stories both current and old.
Nick heads up to New York and visits Kings Ave. Tattoo for the first of four great episodes he recorded there. And, of course, the first is a great conversation with none other than Mr. Mike Rubendall.
Lots of great bullshit in this one. Will Lollie joins in every now and then and the great Steve-O is hangin' out too. It's a fun one. There's an excellent Shop Talk, too!
Blake has been gettin' tattooed at Alley Cat and playing music around Harrisonburg for as long as Nick can remember. He brings his guitar by and has a drink or two with Nick and the stories are wild and the songs are loose and loud.
Just a straight up fun episode and a great Shop Talk. Enjoy, y'all.

Nick and Richie took a trip down to Richmond where Will Lollie was visiting Absolute Art. Along with Brian Bruno, everyone sat down to discuss a very wide range of topics, some of which are a bit controversial. Touching on everything from today's politically correct climate all the way to the wonderful topic of DNA. You know what I mean.
An excellent Shop Talk session wraps things up neatly at just under three hours. We thank everyone for listening and hop you enjoy!
Not much to elaborate on here, you just gotta listen! Nick's lifelong friend Vicky comes on over and bullshits with Nick about all kinds of fascinating stuff from growing up in the Section 8 housing to partying here and there.
Plus a Shop Talk. We're back! Enjoy.
