    Caleb Landry Jones & Jojo T Gibbs (Dogman) & Black Oxygen

    Caleb Landry Jones & Jojo T Gibbs (Dogman) & Black Oxygen

    Step behind the curtain with Kyle McMahon, as we illuminate the trials and triumphs of some of Tinseltown's finest. Caleb Landry Jones and Jojo T Gibbs kick off the star-studded lineup, revealing the intensity of their performances in Luc Besson's "Dogman" — a film that promises to keep audiences on the edge of their seats with its flashback-driven storytelling. Meanwhile, the unstoppable Lyle brothers of Black Oxygen share their journey from battling bands to making a barbecue sauce that's as fiery as their music chart success.

    The melody of perseverance sings loud in the tale of Black Oxygen's David and Nick Lyle, who've turned their brotherly bond into a business empire that dances between hit tracks and a successful venture into fashion and culinary delights like Black Oxygen Bangin' BBQ Sauce. Their strategic approach to the music business is a masterclass in entrepreneurial creativity, and their chat unfolds into a blueprint for making a mark in the industry. It's all about the hustle, the music, and the unique narrative that takes a life of its own—one that's as dynamic as the roles they will soon embody in their silver screen debut.

    As the final act, we peel back the layers of what it takes to transition from the recording studio to the movie set, exploring the strategic release of Black Oxygen's summer-vibed album, carefully planned alongside their film debut and tour dates.

    So tighten your laces, or slip on your Crocs if you're feeling adventurous, and prepare for a podcast episode that dances between the lines of music, film, and the relentless pursuit of dreams.
