Appy Hour Talk Show • Season 03, Episode 03

In episode three of the third season of the Appy Hour, we’re joined by Josh Houghton, Growth Marketing Manager at Fernish. In true SoCal fashion, Josh used to work at a beachside restaurant for the sole purpose of being able to hit the surf, but that’s not his best beachside story. When flying to get his pilot’s license, Josh and his Uncle ended up crash landing the plane on Doheny State Beach when the engine stopped! Thanks to quick thinking from the duo, no one was hurt and they even made the local news.

But that’s not his only wild story; when Josh was born he was accidentally given heroin at the hospital! After four weeks in the hospital with his mystery ailment, a med student realized “that baby’s as high as a kite”… we’re not making that up. After a long day of telling the wildest stories of this season, Josh likes to wind down with a Moscow Mule (which originated in Los Angeles… or New York depending on who you ask).
