According to our guest, men touch their mustache an average of 760 times a day. We discuss what’s popular in mo and beard styles, proper care for facial hair and welcome listeners’ stories about sideburns, staches, stubble and more.

For the past several years, men around the world are encouraged to let their facial hair grow as part of No-Shave November and Movember, two separate campaigns to raise awareness for men’s health issues.
