June 23rd, 2019

In this livestream, we are battling a bad storm system coming in.

26: Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio

April 27th, 2019

In episode 26, I get Captain Bob and Arlo on the phone from Wisconsin Hot Rod Radio.....for part 2!  Or 1? Part 1 revisited? The original interview was one that I lost with the SD card issues at SEMA 2018 and they agreed to do it again!

Ive listened to their radio show for a few years now and wanted to find out how exactly they got their start in radio.  They are the voices of the Hot Rodders, but how did that come about?  Whats the car culture like up in Wisconsin?  Why are the such strong supports of SEMA itself? and of course, we have to hear about the hot rods they own!  I also give thanks about a little known fact that BoothTalk originating from a conversation with them 3 years ago.

 Not much paint talk in this episode.  Its always fun to talk with car people and support those who support you.  They're great guys, check em out

22:The SEMA Files 2018 Part 2

January 19th, 2019

In this 2nd part of the SEMA Files, there are the last 2 interviews I was able to save after what we found to be an SD Card issue.  I sit down in the Aero Detailing Booth and talk with Greg Stelse about his shop In Wisconsin, Greg's Speed Shop.  Finding out what it is like getting started and where he wants to go with it.  I also talk with Ryan Korek from Korek Designs, and get some background on him and how drag racing played a big part of his life in the industry.

I hope to do longer episodes with each of these 2 guys in the future, but as you can understand, things at SEMA are always fast paced.  I had a blast talking with them and hope to get to see Greg's Speed Shop this summer for the Iola Car show.

44: Discussing how chemicals effect us SPECIAL GUEST

December 23rd, 2018

In this audio from the first hour of the livestream, I have a special guest with me.  We are priviledged to have a medical professional with 33 years of experience answering questions and giving info on the basics of what actually happens with exposure to the chemicals. 

 *Just a heads up and a note here.  I make a complete point as to why I dont do math in my head when we get to talking and demoing the respiratory piece.  He went with it to explain how to get the basic numbers.*

As I said in the stream, this IS NOT a diagnosing episode, nor anything of the sort.  This is NOT a Q and A seeking answers for what may be going on with you personally.  This is and was simply bringing information to people.  If you feel you are having problems or have more questions, I urge you to consult with your personal medical care professional. 


This was a great livestream and had alot of participation in it.  Thank you for listening and for spreading the word about Boothtalk.  Give us a follow and join in LIVE, Saturday Nights @Boothtalk on Instagram

21:The 2018 SEMA Files Part 1

November 30th, 2018

I am back from SEMA and trying to get into a normal routine again.  One thing about being out there is the sheer amount of people you can talk with.  Its an incredible experience and cant wait to do it again in 2019.


In this episode, I sit down in PPG and Aero Detailing's Booths and interview Charley Hutton, Mitch and Tom Kelly, Kyle Morely, and Bernt Karlsson.


Charley returns for the 2nd year and we get to talking about how he looks at cars, restorations vs hot rods, the importance of the Collision Industry, water and solvent and more.

Kyle Morley opens up about how he does his design work and how he approaches each paint job.  Also what it was like being a collision painter and taking the jump into owning his own shop.  As well as why its important for him and others to help the next generation of techs coming in.

Tom and Mitch Kelly, talk of their start as father and son and go into the background of who was involved years ago in the beginning.  The evolution of candy paints and what they use these days, what its like working with family, and of course....what sparked their interest originally for the industry and why they love it

Bernt Karlsson talks coming to America to work for Boyd Coddington, honing his skills learning how to shape metal and doing custom work over the years, teaching the younger generation how to work with their hands and more!
