Some Like it HOT!!!!

Well with record heat these days I thought it would be fitting to embrace the hot-ness for all its worth. Today we will journey around the world with women who defy, who proclaim, who demand, and who croon. These women challenge us to examine what are we hot about, who are we hot for, and what exactly is HOT!

Join us for a great interview at the 2:30pm mark and just sit back and enjoy the heat as it brushes over you this lovely Thursday in July. The sun is beaming and we will be shining in its glow. Please excuse the order in advance, this listing is just suggested, not set in stone, hold on for this fabulous ride today.
