Timothy Hoyer is back on No Lies Just Bullshit and this man needs no introduction. Stopping through on one of his visits to Alley Cat Tattoo that he partakes in several times a year, Timothy sits down and has a wonderful talk with Andrew Conner about art and inspiration that you will not want to miss if you are at all a fan of either of these incomparable artists.

Nick mediates for the rest of us and gets in there with some insight and instigation that goes far enough into cracking the shell on these two modest makers that we get a glimpse of the genius we've all come to know and love from these fellas.

Stick around for the triumphant reunion of the Shop Talk Three! Porter and Andrew and Nick tell you about the tattoos that you need to see. Hell yeah.

Greg DeHoot has been involved in punk rock and tattooing for many years so you know he fit right in with Nick's blend of storytellin' and bullshit. Frustrated with trying to enjoy his love of traveling to tattoo with other amazing artists at conventions and other places while having access to proper gear, Greg ended up solving the lighting problem tattooers have in these situations by creating the LTD Light.

He discusses this innovation and what led up to it during this episode with Nick. Stick around for another killer Shop Talk with Mr. Chris Porter as they discuss tats one more time without Andrew, but promise a reunion on the horizon!

It's that time of year again when Nick heads north to not attend the Philadelphia Tattoo Convention but instead hangs out at the hotel across the way and listens to and tells some great stories with some great tattoo artists who happen to be in town. This time is no different as Nick chills with JoJo Ackerman from 10,000 Waves Tattoo in Sherman Oaks, California. JoJo talks about his long history in the business and together they share some great stories.

You're gonna love all the bullshit and also the return of Shop Talk! Andrew is still out there traveling and creating, but Nick and Porter tell you about some great tattoos. Enjoy!

Nick & Richie road tripped up to Philly during the Philadelphia Tattoo Convention recently and once again, didn't go inside but recorded some amazing episodes for all you bullshitters.

Rich Fie discusses Caddies, films and tattooing with Nick while a whole cast of characters who are role-called eventually in the episode, listen, laugh and every now and then chime in. So it's a fun ride we got going on here.

One more week without a Shop Talk as Andrew and Porter stay busy tatttooing everything and everyone.

Deep in the Shenandoah Valley, down in Rock-Town, back in the back o' the recesses of the No Lies Just Bullshit studios and whiskey reserves, two legends of the microphone of the world-renowned Harrisonburg based podcast of the ages comes the latest episode featuring the brilliance and irresistable charm of your weekly host with the most Nick Swartz and his undeniably talented and strange guest, Mister Chris Porter. You'll marvel at their passion for tattooing and telling you which movies you have to watch while belittling your own personal preferences to which you will not only delight but beg for more. It's where you wanna be and what'chu wanna be hearin'.

There ain't no Shop Talk on this one, but don't worry tattoo fans, Mr. Andrew Conner will return soon to join these two masterminds and talk some shop for y'all in the near future. P.S. - prepare yourself for the appearance of the Sky in this unique and truly wonderful intro to Episode 175. Boom.

Close friend of the shop and the podcast, Andy Sherman, is back for another episode. He takes a break from slingin' those oil paints to sit down and have a chat with Nick about all kinds of stuff. Porter joins the boys toward the end and everyone has a good ol' time.

Stick around as Andy & Porter join Nick for another edition of Shop Talk where some amazing tattoos are discussed. Andrew Conner will return soon. For now, enjoy!

To get the New Year started off, we've got somethin' a little different for y'all. This is an entire episode dedicated to being a fly on the wall out at Nick's house for a New Year's Jam and hangout. You'll recognized some of the names and voices on this one. There really aren't any stories or long-winded discussions here, just some great tunes and good times.

Shop Talk makes a return this week, however! Mr. Andrew Conner is still busy livin' life, so as a guest, Mr. Andrew Sherman show up to hang out and talk tats with Nick and Porter.
