  • Sultry Summer Part 2 (Just Joshing, Episode 172) – featuring Win Day, Mel Vee, and Rayanne Haines on the presidency and operations of an association, using both sides of the brain, photography, racism in Canada, & merging different genres
  • Sultry Summer Part 3 (Just Joshing, Episode 173) featuring Alyssa Linn Palmer joins the show and we talk about the interesting mixture of noir and romance, talk setting trends, Casablanca and more.
