It's another week of stories gathered during the quarantine. Things are slowly beginning to open back up, but most folks are still chillin' at home for the most part, so we got a few more stories that were phoned in to Nick to keep the bullshit goin' through this thing. This week we've got Mr. Scotty Knuckles from Inksmith & Rogers kicking it off with a great talk and some entertainin' anecdotes he shares with Nick from a distance. Then we got George Archer tellin' us like it is and reminiscing some from down the road here in Virginia. Then we got good long-time friend Will Lollie tellin a hilarious tale that serves as a good warnin' to anyone full of themselves.

Shop Talk wraps it up tight with Mr. Porter and Andrew actually recordin' in person once more in the No Lies Just Bullshit studios located next door to the re-opened Alley Cat Tattoo. Excellent stuff here, y'all.

Three veterans of the podcast phone in during the quarantine to hang out with Nick for a while and kick off a new series of short stories for No Lies Just Bullshit. First up we have Kenny Brown turning us on to some real old school tattooing and shootin' the shit with Nick for a while. Then Juan Puente calls us up to share some humorous anecdotes so as not to incriminate anyone from the old days. Finally Tim Hendricks wraps up this episode with an awesome story that'll leave you feelin' good about things. It's all wrapped up with a bow in the form of another quarantine Shop Talk with Mr. Porter and Andrew Conner. Enjoy the banter, enjoy the tattoos. No Lies. Just Bullshit.

He's been on a few times before and it's always a great time hanging out with Andy Sherman and Nick when they get goin' together talkin' about all kinds of stuff. Good ol' country livin' is the main topic at hand, but you know there's gonna be some great tattoo stories and some music discussion you won't wanna miss! It's still a weird time in the world right now, so the backwoods duo touches on some relevant topics ranging from things that are happening in the world right now to old traditions and discussions. It's a good'n.

Plus: it's a quarantine miracle, y'all! We've got us a kickass phone-in Shop Talk featuring those dudes you love to miss: Mr. Andrew Conner and Chris Porter, comin' at ya live with some excellent discussion of amazing tattoos that you definitely shouldn't miss with all that free time you got. Good to have 'em back!

Nate Hall, musician from Old Heavy Hands and tattooer from down South and long time friend of Nick and the show returns for another episode to check in on things during this quarantine which we hope is about to reach its end. Lots of good times, drinks and stories from shops, shows & friends take place here, so we really hope y'all enjoy this and that it helps you get through this weird time we're all livin' in right now. Stay safe and stay in and let's do this thing together.

Shop Talks still haven't managed to manifest themselves logistically during all of our introspective reassessment of our creative lives, but hopefully next week Porter & Andrew will return!
