About This Show
Got a great mustache or beard? Want to know about the culture that surrounds those that grow? For most it is a way of life, not some trendy accessory. We will be covering all types of issues including charity work, styling products and care, to the people that shape the culture and the interesting stories behind them, and anything else interesting. Come join host, Scott Sykora, as he digs into what is going on in the community all across the country and finds out what makes the people that grow amazing facial hair such amazing people.

Aaron Left is the public relations officer for the The Moustache and Beard Social Club and owner/operator of AJ's Elixirs. They are about to host the The 7th Annual Northern California Beard And Moustache Competition at the California Automobile Museum in Sacramento on April 21st. We had a great chat about his bearded history and how he was pulled into his first event. We talked a bit about the club and event and we dove into a few of our favorite categories at the event. This competition is a definite must to attend each year as they gather to help their local animal charity, PAWS, and raise funds to help with the adoption and care programs. I hope that you can attend this fun event and show your amazing facial hair off for this great cause! Enjoy my talk with Aaron-he was a blast to talk with about something we both love and try to share with as many people as we can. About PAWS: Pet Adoption & Wellness Services Pet Adoption and Wellness Services is a non-profit organization based out of Woodland, CA who are dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, from shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, local veterinarians, and trainers, we are able to rescue animals, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully-screened forever homes. They also serve as a resource to our community and all pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.
