A Criminal Defense & Civil Rights Litigation Lawyer,  she tells Briana and Josh how she started her career path in fashion  publishing, only to then decide to go to Law School. Good decision?  She's now a partner at Barket Epstein and, in 2018, produced the ABC  documentary series, The Last Defense, which exposes flaws in  the American justice system through emotional, in-depth examinations of  the death row cases of Darlie Routier and Julius Jones.  



Dye Job, with Master Colorist Rick Wellman of Marc Harris Salon

According to Master Colorist Rick Wellman, all it took was helping his  stepmom through a really bad perm experience and, he says, he knew at  just age 12 what he was meant to do. However, growing up in Ohio, he had  no idea where a career as a hairstylist would take him. He tells Briana  and Josh about his journey that started in Canton, took him to  Columbus, and finally landed him in New York City, where he has  established himself as a successful and highly sought-after Master  Colorist.

It's in Her Blood, with Storyteller Shannon Denise Evans of Spectra Rock Band SAVARRE

We cannot write a description that will do this episode justice because  no one can tell Shannon Denise Evans' story quite as well as she can.  Whether through the lyrics in her music or written words in her novels,  the multi-talented storyteller took what was once a painful past and  turned it into a promising future by sharing it with the world. Shannon  joins Briana and Josh in studio to discuss how a Port-wine stain on her  face overtook her identity as a child and how she learned to wear it as a  badge of courage... until it became medically necessary to have it  removed.

Her biggest challenge came, however, when she  got her first production and had to leave her newborn twins to go to  Las Vegas. Get to know this badass dreamer in the latest episode of Jobs  Blow.

With A Little Help From His Friends, with actor Jack Zullo ("With A Little Help...It's John Belushi!

From being party to the biggest party-fraternity at the University of Buffalo (ΣAM),  to forging his way through the brutal landscape of Hollywood,  actor/producer/writer Jack Zullo is always going at high ‘Octane’  speeds. UB is where he met Josh, providing Jack big belly laughs, and  ever since Jack has provided Josh great perspective on the grueling  acting industry. Now Jack is back home in New York getting ready to  launch his Off-Broadway, live, tribute-show to comedy legend John  Belushi, premiering at St. Marks’ Theater 80 this December 2019. He’s  researched, he’s written and now Jack will once again embody the  legendary tour-de-force comedian that was Belushi (aka John “Bluto”  Blutarsky, aka the Samurai Futaba, aka Jake Blues). And to such rave  reviews in LA that even John’s brother James (Jim) snuck into a show and  was blown away. Get ready NYC! “With a Little Help…It’s John Belushi”  is about to be something that this Brother Blues you away with, too!
