Jobs Blow with Briana and Josh sounds pornographic, but like many job descriptions, it isn’t what it seems. With aspiring writer and marketing professional Briana Haas and funny-man Mr. Josh Hyman as your HUMOR Resources team, we present the podcast for "Dreamers with Day Jobs." Born out of Briana and Josh's own personal highs, lows, and frustrations in the endless pursuit of their dream careers, each episode is a mix of entertainment, information and inspiration, as guests share their own unique journeys. Tune in for tales of layoffs, promotions, opportunities, firings, hirings, amazing strokes of luck, and crazy jobs that suck. Created to bring people together to support one another in their quest for something better, no conversation would be complete without some tea spilt about hysterical on-the-job experiences.

In the midst of what is happening in the world, it was a pleasure to have this badass coach and ball of positive energy stop by the Jobs Blow Podcast.

Aida Leisenring stopped by the Jobs Blow Podcast, fresh from her appearance on ABC News where she offered commentary on the Harvey Weinstein case. 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. 
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. Make an appt. to get Rick's story and stay for some fun (celeb) gossip.

That's when she launched her company Rock Locations. And if you think that's gutsy - wait till you hear how she trusted Josh to teach her son math.
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.

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!*("Everybody, Needs Somebody To Love..." so if you only love Briana, don't be mad that she couldn't make the record session for this episode. It's still a good one!)
Peter Marshark stops by the Jobs Blow Podcast to talk about facing down a life-threatening addiction that could have left him in financial ruin or worse... dead. Through sheer determination and with the support of friends, today he is the owner of Marshark Craft, a successful catering service for major film, fashion, and TV productions. But before his success, he tells Briana and Josh how his journey took him from the glamorous world of fashion photography and partying at Studio 54 to being locked up in Riker's and homeless. And that is only the beginning. 
For some, it’s a pursuit of a lifelong passion. For others, like Sara Berliner, it can start as a spark… that ignites an idea… and then becomes a purpose. Her spark came in the form of a sign she created for a protest march that got unexpected reactions from strangers on the train and street. On that day, her four simple words “Vote Like a Mother” became a movement to provide parents with opportunities to contribute, recognizing that we all have something to give -- be it time, money, or a platform. As Sara says, “When I think about voting like a mother, I think about improving our world locally, regionally, nationally, and globally.”

Becoming a celebrity makeup artist didn't happen overnight for Faye Lauren. In fact, her original dream was to teach Kindergarten, but after working with children, she decided to shift course.

When the Jobs Blow Podcast needed a last minute guest, Mike Rakosi saved the day. Rakosi raced from his Upper East Side apartment to the Comic Strip Live to fill in for a last minute cancellation for his buddy Josh. A successful commercial real estate mogul whose first client was Howard Stern, he didn't hold back when sharing opinions on everything from childhood acquaintance Donald Trump to Josh's hairy knuckles to losing $65 Million. That's right - and he came back from it. Like most salesmen - Rakosi delivers an earful, but we still aren't sure we got any real answers.
