November 23rd, 2019

We are back!  After a short hiatus prepping for the SEMA show in Las Vegas, doing travelling, and the awesomeness that occurs when you have sick kids(ugh), we are back live and in each of your faces on Saturday nights again. 


Tonight's topic was suggested at the beginning before i hit record.  Wanting to discuss proper cleaning of EVERYTHING filters, cars, suits. So, we hit on it all and then randomness ensued afterward.  It was a fun night of conversation with everyone and hope to see you join us next week!

31: Matt Ehlebracht

October 31st, 2019

Sitting down and talking with Lucky Matt himself during SEMA crunch time!  At the time of this recording, him and the shop were gearing up to lay all the graphic work on the truck being built for the SEMA show in Las Vegas 2019.  He had a hard time getting in the industry itself, but found his way in and found a love for classics.  We discuss how a trip to buy materials for making blocks for himself, accidentally turned into a business.  Also information about last year's SEMA build and what all went into it, and more.

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
