13- Ron VaudryVeteran of the game, Ron Vaudry, sits with Julien in his hotel room as part of 'The West Coast Tapes': instalment 3.

This is certainly one for the books. They go back 36 years when Ron began his journey in show business, move through the years which brings them to the late 90's and they touch on a topic that has stirred up some controversy in the recent past regarding "Crash and Burn' amateur night created by Vaudry. They address it and the other person involved (Darren Frost) is called to get his side of the story. Keeping with the controversy thread, they also discuss/ clear-up a recent Facebook dispute Ron was involved in regarding the closing of The Comedy Works in Montreal.

8- Jen GrantHaaye! Episode 8 is upon us and Jen Grant joins Julien in studios. Jen has an impressive resume in where her best credit is "Julien Dionne's girlfriend". But seriously, Jen is a 16 year veteran of the stand up game and done every major festival and TV appearance Canada has to offer. They talk about her years in the business and if that weren't enough, Jen also spent 3 years killing it in New York, the City. Tune in as they discuss entertaining the troops in Egypt and Israel, opening for "Puppetry of the Penis" and the aggravating nature of being pigeon-holed a "female" comic.

Jen and Julien square off in a hilarious "Mariah or Yoko" segment where the listeners (that's YOU), decide the winner.

7- Fabio MantoanOne of the most fascinating guests joins Julien in Lemon Press Studios. Fabio Mantoan, chef, art curator, event emcee, world traveler, Mexican cartel escaper, is one interesting dude. He tells his story and you want to hear it (trust me). Hailing from Italy, now making his home in Mexico, they discuss Fabio's career as a traveling chef, and all the sidelines that make his story so damn captivating. One story finds Fabio fleeing from Los Zetas cartel in Mexico to protect him and his family.

6- Adam FauxSinger/Songwriter/Musician/Producer, a man of many hats, Adam Faux (who's actually the producer of this very podcast), sits down with Julien at Lemon Press Studios and they go deep. Adam's vast career in the music business spans over 30 years and they cover a big part of that in this episode. They discuss the 80's Toronto punk rock scene, making hit records with "Pigfarm", the luxuries of piling 4 guys in a nicotine soaked touring van and racking up the miles over several years of touring North America with a few great stories thrown in there.
They also get the story behind one of Adam's most powerful songs, Josephine. Listen through the end of the whole episode to hear the song-- it's a great listen.
Once again, Jen Grant stops in for a hysterical version of "Mariah or Yoko" where they square off and take on "When a Man Loves a Woman". High.
