79. MLK Day, Total Eclipse, & Lesley Jo

Funny to Informing

John and Coleman have on the most recent guest from our Backyard Sessions, comedian and host Lesley Jo! Instead of raffling off a bunch of questions at her though, she just hangs out. Discussions include Coleman and John’s week, Steve Harvey two different times, Nerf dart shooting, and of course a lot more! For the segment “Did Ya Hear?”, it was too easy to talk about the Eclipse, the Super Bowl match up, and Martin Luther King Jr Day – so that’s exactly what happened! As we get closer to multiple changes with the show, it is coincidental that Coleman has a new living situation as well. Also, how is burnt ash white on black surfaces but black on white surfaces? We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoy chatting, legalize marinara, and LAUGH WITH US OR AT US!

Backyard Sessions 11 – Lesley Jo

Funny to Informing

Episode 11 of Backyard Sessions is featuring the multi-talented Lesley Jo! She’s a comedian/comedy host in Orlando, and a talk show host of “State of the Beer Union” and as of recently, “Tidbits”. Rocky and John bounce around quite a bit in asking their questions. Discussions included food, beer, Lesley’s perfect day, her making the change from introvert to extrovert, and obviously more! It was a lazy day so Rocky and John ordered pizza instead of making chicken, but there was an assorted beer bucket to make up for it! Which was nothing compared to all of the beers Lesley has ever tried as she talks about her favorite kinds. She also has some insight on the comedy scene and what it’s like to be wrapped up in it. Kick back and enjoy an hour of comedian Lesley Jo!

32. Happy New Year 2019! Welcome new host Lesley Jo!


The biggest fun part of this episode?  The big announcement!  Sure, it was already announced on a couple of other PFT shows because I was so excited, but if you didn't hear those, you don't know until you listen!  Oh yeah, I also put something on the PFT group.  Forgot about that.
