It’s a party of Janetors and Adventurkateers with episode 167 and Boy of Summer Hal Lublin (The Thrilling Adventure Hour). Will someone please help Hal find his lost plush Pluto doll? Or at bare minimum, make him a t-shirt like the one he describes on the podcast? These are pressing human issues.

Tom reached out to a wonderful woman (who used to take his Kick Box Cardio class) Ms. Marcy Guevara who is a Plus Size Style Influencer & asked if she would be a guest, Marcy enthusiastically accepted & this magical episode happened. Tom had no idea what Marcy really did, he followed her on Facebook & thought she had a voice that would resonate with some PYP listeners. So here is the result of simply 'taking a chance, following his gut' & the magic of Marcy begins - enjoy! Check out/follow Marcy Guevara: @themarcyminute and themarcyminute.com
A spontaneous "stop by return guest cameo'" almost stops the PYP boyz in their tracks. Somehow they gather themselves & power through.

Within that email Christine teaches us all about perspective, being aware and what being Pro You truly means. For that we are thankful and for that we dedicated this episode to Christine, in all her beauty - thank you Christine!
