This week on the Another Round podcast, we bring you our interview with comedian Janelle James!

My first comedy album, Black and Mild is available for PRE-ORDER today on ITUNES! Officially drops on Sept. 29th…

Janelle talked to us about how her comedy has evolved in these crazy times, how she does her hair when she goes on tour, and more!

"I've been in a braid phase for a minute...As black women get more and more famous, the straighter their hair gets...So, I'm like, I'm going the opposite direction..." β€” Janelle James

She also reflected on her time as a dominatrix.

Her dom name was "Sasha." We had SO many questions.
