Bald Talk

Bald comedians, Brian Huskey and Charlie Sanders, interview celebrities, actors, musicians, directors, and really anyone about being bald, both literally and figuratively. Bald Talk isn’t just for the hairless because everyone has that insecurity, hang up or self image issue that is their personal "bald spot". The in depth interviews and conversations about vulnerability, vanity, insecurity, and self image are always hilarious, but also stuff gets deep. Brian and Charlie are always down to have a good old fashioned Bald Talk.
