Soda Nation // Make Soda Fun Again

Soda Nation // Make Soda Fun Again

November 14, 2020

You thought you new everything there was to know about soda.. but you clearly haven’t met David Gray. Proudly the owner of Stockholm’s sole soda shop, “Soda Nation”, David thrives in the soda trade small scale and whole sale worldwide. When I first met him at his storefront, he said he “Just wanted to make soda fun again,” and I can truly say I’ve never met someone so knowledgeable about all things fizzy.

-

Though not the biggest storefront, hundreds and hundreds of unique drinks from around the globe line the towering shelves of it, updated regularly in and out of season. Much of what you find within will be impossible to find anywhere else in town.

Sthlm Signs // Always Handpainted

Sthlm Signs // Always Handpainted

October 31, 2020

Hand-painting. An art form seemingly lost in a digital age of graphic design and technology... but not for Pontus Bergman and Henrik Linquist! The duo picked up sign painting as a hobby in 2015 and quickly recognized the need for their craft in the Stockholm area, creating more of a demand for what they do by starting their company Sthlm Signs the following year.

-

Many of the massive murals spread throughout the streets of the Sodermalm area near to where the barber shop is are curated by the gents at Sthlm Signs, though it was really when I saw their smaller, incredibly detailed work close up that I was taken away. I'm convinced that hand-painting is the only way, and I think that after listening to this episode, so will you!

-

This episode makes Sips and Clips history as being the first to feature two guests at once. Alongside my coworker / cohost Robin, it's double the cuts, double the coffee, and double the creative conversation with some hand-painting heroes!

The Occasional Rider // For Those About To Ride

The Occasional Rider // For Those About To Ride

October 17, 2020

The art of motorcycling. There’s simply something about them that provokes response. To some they scream freedom, and others, danger... or something beautiful in between. For Micke Fritz, it’s a lifestyle. After running a web shop and realizing a serious lack of any motorcycle good and supply stores in town, Micke took a leap of faith and opened his very own; dubbing it “The Occasional Rider.” If you fit that description or not, you’ll feel right at home in Micke’s shop and listening to this episode!

PIZZZZZAAA! If you love it or hate it, its a big deal. Anyone who lives in Stockholm and has a true love for the ancient Italian delicacy has likely heard the legend of a place called 800 Grader Pizza. (In English, 800 Degrees.)

Find out how two friends without a background in cooking set out on a journey to discover and create the best pizza experience they could. What makes pizza the most nostalgic food?

September 19, 2020

Through a contact made by my boss Oskar, this time we had the honor to be joined in the shop by Christian Lindskog, lead singer of Swedish post hardcore band Blindside! From tour van crashes while in Oklahoma with Mewithoutyou, secret singing and recording techniques hidden away for generations that involve lying on the floor, ASMR, and a respectable amount of conversation about the earth being flat or not, you get it all here in this one!

Gurgin // Minimalistic Van Life and.. Dogcasting?

Gurgin // Minimalistic Van Life and.. Dogcasting?

September 5, 2020

Right out of Södermalm this week we have our eclectic guest Gurgin! Originally finding his "Minimalism on Wheels" page / podcast on Instagram, I reached out to him to chat about his life on the road and projects; but as I tamed his mane I realized Gurgin’s story had many more layers to peel back. Leaving behind a successful life as a radio host lead our friend down the road to van life, running Sweden's most successful podcast about dogs, and one heck of a creative adventure.

MacLaren Barbers // Essentials for the Modern Man

August 22, 2020

The episode we didn’t know we needed, but all saw coming. I figured it wouldn’t be fair to not have on my boss and one of the guys behind MacLaren Barbers here in Stockholm.. Oskar Freiman! Barbering only scratches the surface though - With a handful of coworkers I invited to join, listen as we drive through Oskar’s journey in the coffee world, how someone who isn’t a barber runs a barber shop, and the fact that scissor wielding robots may be taking over in the near future?

Handcrafted In Sweden // A Legacy Of Leather

August 7, 2020

The summer heat is blazing on here in Stockholm, and today in the shop we find ourselves in conversation with Paolo Guevara. Taking us through a legacy of leather, Paolo tells about his local brand Handcrafted In Sweden; all the while sowing tales of cowhide, custom creations, and leathery glory. Sit back, listen up, and imagine how much better your life would be if everything you owned was made of high quality leather.
