Ep.75-Paul Hendrix and Diane Blastic of BULLY RANCH

The vision of an animal sanctuary and a pit bull rescue were just two of the ideas of Bully Ranch, recently started by married couple Paul Hendrix and Diane Blastic. Paul and Diance, members of the Austin Facial Hair Club, have been working with pitbulls for sometime now and have nothing but love and admiration for the breed. They have invested considerable time into understanding the training and the demeanor of this often understood animal. In our conversation about Bully...


EP.74-Kenny Parbel

Kenny Parbel is the President of the Ohio Chapter and SGT. At-Arms for the National Chapter of Bearded Sinners. Upon learning of who the Bearded Sinners were, my world was opened to another side of the “bearding community” that I wasn’t aware existed. Both Kenny and I got our start in the club scene at the same event back in 2012 and didn’t even know we had crossed paths numerous times. We “officially” met at the Morgan Hose VFD fundraiser beard and mustache contest, EP.71...

Ep.72-Natali Johnston is...The Beardcaster

Beards Behind Bars 2 was held a few weeks back at the historic Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield Ohio. The Beardcaster attended this event, where he placed 3rd to Luke Sumpter, 2nd place, and Butch Amos who won the goatee category. The best part of the evening was a tribute beard by Natali Johnston of the Holy City Beard and Mustache Society in the Whiskerina “Natural” category. When the Whiskerinas make “tribute” beards they usually pick an influential person in the bearding community...

This competition...


Ep.69-Regev Nystrom

Regev Nystrom has been doing freestyle beards for almost 35 years and has moderate success with his creative designs. Episode 69 is my "sex packed" episode and I thought Regev would be the perfect guide to take us on a fun adventure into the world of the unknown. What sets him apart from all these other creative beard wearers is his natural born talent of translation of gay porn from English to Japanese flawlessly. He discovered this hidden talent years ago while working in a corporate...


Ep.68-Alice Jelley

Alice Jelley is a World Champion Whiskerina. Hailing from Bath England, Alice had the honor of being crowned #1 Creative Beard at the World Beard and Mustache Championships in Austin Texas in 2017.

Ep.66-Douglas Smythe

What an eye opener this interview was with Douglas Smythe of Phoenix Shaving. He made me want to climb back into the womb to incubate a tad longer to grow into true “manhood”. Douglas shared with me techniques of “wet” shaving and his thoughts on the conspiracy of the multi-blade cartridge companies. Tips galore are found in this episode with a true crafter of high quality, tested shaving products. Not only is Douglas the purveyor of some exquisite shaving items, he also caters to the...

President of the Corpus Christi Hairy Hooligans, Johnny Rodriguez and I spent an evening talking about how great partial beards are and Beards on The Bay 2018.

I was joined by one of my most favorite people in the facial hair community, Crystal Davis, President of the Modesto Beard and Mustache Coalition. They have a fun little event planned called Beat’Em by a Hare this coming weekend and we hope you can make it out. Crystal and I also pretty much “shoot the shit” and talked about a lot of random stuff, so enjoy this candid “friendship chat”. We finished out the chat with Crystals daughter telling me some pretty bad jokes so check it...

Every beard, or mustache, grower has gone through a few moments in their facial hairs life where it just drives them crazy. I am joined by MJ Johnson and we discuss the things that irritate us with our beards. Everyone can relate to at least one Beard Beef that we talk about-we all are afflicted with something that our beards make more difficult for us everyday. We have made a big commitment with growing and caring for our "investment" that we end up dealing with all of these issues and...

We sat down and talked about their upcoming "Whiskermania 3" event and also the previous years of this wrestling themed beard and mustache contest. Ryan is quite an interesting fella and I love finding common interests with someone other than beards when I interview them! There are some pretty big named and accomplished judges for this event, and Aaron Johnston to round it off. We talk about all the details of...


EP.58-Doug White

Small towns can breed some interesting people. I traveled thousands of miles to meet with an interesting fella, Doug White, and talk all things beard clubbing. President of the Beards of the Old Northwest Rock Creek Chapter, Doug has a great group of guys surrounding him that really help out their local community. They all have big hearts and the desire to do good things for those that are in need as opposed to use club status in a competitive nature. I really learned a lot about how a club...
