Episode 59- Ryan Gore

IMG_9832.JPG

Ryan Gore is the president of the Derby City Whisker Club out of Louisville KY.  We sat down and talked about their upcoming "Whiskermania 3" event and also the previous years of this wrestling themed beard and mustache contest.  Ryan is quite an interesting fella and I love finding common interests with someone other than beards when I interview them!  There are some pretty big named and accomplished judges for this event, and Aaron Johnston to round it off.  We talk about all the details of the event, but here they are all below-Hope to see you there!!!

The hardest hitting beard and moustache championship in the land is back for round three! In a bigger venue, on a bigger stage, with even bigger beards - this is an event you won't want to miss!

We will be supporting Active Heroes again this year! They are a great charity that helps aid military families and works to prevent veteran suicide.
