About Us

Samsara Happy Hour captures spiritual guests discussing spiritual quests over featured beers. The concept arose from the ashes of countless conscious raps between mindfulness junkie Jason and The Chopping Block Post Production's Mike. The bonds shared on the show are reminiscent of the relaxed and insightful conversations that spark up around campfires. The topic is spirituality; the tonic is quality beer. May these shared bonds be of benefit to others.
