Life Is Like a Bag of Chips with Jonathan Torrens

The Writing's On The Wall - Becky Matheson
This week on the podcast we talk to Halifax's Becky Matheson, owner of Wanderlust Tattoo Halifax.  Becky has a sign on the wall of her studio that says "Eat Chips" so it's not surprising that we got along so well. Becky talked with me about her favourite chip (if there is such a thing), a lot about choices, and a conversation surrounding "decoy potato chips". I hope you enjoy and if you want to see some of Becky's incredible work you can check her out at and you can check out her studio at

The Cheesiest of Trolls - Laird Smith
This week I sit down with one of my best friends and one of my worst friends. One man. Laird Smith. In typical Laird fashion, he spends most of the episode messing with me talking about how to categorize berries and in typical me fashion, I fall for it hook line and sinker. We also talk about why Laird hates the second most delicious substance on earth.
