My entertainment reporting is featured in @vulture, a huge @nymag pop culture site! In a profile of @actordougjones, star of @realgdt‘s @shapeofwatermovie, they referenced my @tiff_net interview where I showed Doug a cartoon I drew of him. And the headline shows that the article was built around the question I asked Doug. It was a lot of work to draw cartoons of the celebrities. And it took a long time to upload the vids to all my social media. But as this shows, you never know which video, cartoon or post will be the one that leads to more. So you just have to persevere, like Doug has! 🌟 #Toronto #TIFF17 #cartoon #reporter #journalist #entertainmentjournalist #Hollywood #redcarpet I am a: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I played with my niece and nephew in their den. Ayla did her flips. Eilan tossed around the gag ketchup bottle I brought them (which @pdiddledoop mailed me as a funbonus when she mailed me the gourmet ketchups). Ayla showed me her toy cash register. I think I should visit them at least weekly, for more playing. Do you agree? 😝 #Hannukah #Jewish #Brampton #Toronto #play #kids #gymnastics #toys #imagination I am a: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

The annual family Hannukah photo at my sister’s in Brampton, in the same pose, holding the same “Happy Hahukah” banner that my mom bought years ago and then discovered the spelling error. The spelling error still makes us laugh, and mom brought it from Ottawa for this photo. 🇮🇱 #Hannukah #HappyHannukah #Brampton #Toronto #Ottawa #family #Jewish #dog I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Lighting the menorah and singing the prayer! And yes, my niece is wearing the gold foil from a chocolate coin (Hannukah gelt) on her nose. She’s only half Jewish, so maybe she’s confused. 🇮🇱 When I arrived at my sister’s in Brampton via @gotransitofficial bus at 5:30pm, my parents had arrived from Ottawa at 3:30pm and everyone had already eaten dinner. Even Chelsea the dog. But they waited for me to light the menorah. Nay, 3 menorahs! 📸 🇮🇱 @metr0gn0me @lornerachlis @louiserachlis @dianarachlis @evildantheman 📷 #Hanukkah #HappyHannukah #menorah #Jewish #Brampton #Toronto #family #kids I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

After watching @grease_to and getting a lychee soda at @thebasilbox, @cherann3 and I came across a @lenovo truck with an Enhanced Reality #awakenyourinnerjedi @starwars #jedichallenges game demo inside. It was run by @planb_promotions and @melissadimarco’s TV show. I interviewed Melissa at @tiff_net and the producer was outside this truck and thought she recognized me, but wasn’t sure because I was wearing my Ernie toque. I revealed my head to show it was me and we had a nice chat in the freezing cold while Cheryl lined up. Then I filmed Cheryl lightsaber-battling a villain. At least, that’s what I assume she was doing. Also, the truck was having a contest to give away tickets for the Star Wars premier tomorrow night. Whether I win or not, I’ll have to see the movie soon. Who’s coming with me? (Last Christmas, I watched Rogue One alone while my family watched something else in another theatre in Ottawa.) 🚀 #Toronto #StarWars #lightsaber #thelastjedi #movie #scifi #virtualreality I am a: #entrepreneur #influencer #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

@cherann3 won tickets to @grease_to from the show’s @facebook page and invited me to come. I was reluctant, because I’m not really into musicals. But I try to push myself beyond my comfort zone. And I’m glad I did! The show provided some much needed Summer Lovin’ during a cold spell in Toronto and a dry spell in my love life. @dswallach’s understudy @plummerdrew was a great Danny who made me wish I had hair to grease. @janelparrish was a singing angel who, I learned afterward, played a scheming devil on @prettylittleliars. Cheryl has seen that entire TV show, and will be my consultant if Janel comes on my podcast. Grease is in Toronto til Jan 7. Everyone go see it and then let’s have a T-Birds & Pink Ladies theme party at my condo! ⚡️⚡️⚡️ #Toronto #musical #theatre #musicaltheatre #dancer #singer 🎤 I am a: #influencer #entrepreneur #feminist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

As you of course saw in my Instagram Story last night, I stopped by @secondcupqueenst to finally meet the owner I’d been messaging with since my last visit. Ready to feel lazy? Nadia (pictured centre) was a nutritionist but left that to buy two @secondcupcanada coffee shops, and, when not working at them, is in university taking bio chem, so she can start her own pharmaceutical company. Oh, and she’s 22 years old. Meanwhile, I’m (cough) slightly older (cough) and I played Scrabble on Facebook today. I think from now on, before I do anything, I should ask myself, “What would Nadia do?” Oh, bonus fact: Her parents and brother work for her. Her brother takes care of the Yonge/Charles location, dad does her accounting and mom works in the Queen/John shop. That’s mom in the background, having just returned from shopping at @zara. Nice of Nadia to give her a break. 🤣 (Should I drop off a résumé?) ☕️ #entrepreneur #biochemistry #nutritionist #nutrition #girlboss #businesswoman #ladypreneur #feminism #coffeeshop #Toronto ☕️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Big thanks to @ymca_canada for their supportive message about the video I posted of my sister @dianarachlis (who has Parkinson’s and Celiac Disease) showing me her daily @ottawa_ymca workout that keeps her being a superhero. Check out the vid on my Facebook & YouTube.

“Josh just played SEX for 44 points!” How exciting! Although, to be honest, it wasn’t as much fun as I thought I remembered playing sex was. But it’s been so long, it’s just good to be back in the swing of things, I guess. 🤔 #sex #single #dating #scrabble #Toronto #comedy #funny I am: #entrepreneur #influencer #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I met fellow ginger @gloriapancrazi for a quick chat yesterday at @darkhorsecafe. Having recently moved from Montreal to Toronto, she’s working on a documentary about saving whales. Meanwhile, I vlog about my attempts to wake up in the morning. She is a better person than me. Still, she’s going to do me the honour of coming over next week to be interviewed on the Celebrity Josh show! Let me know if you have any questions for her! 🐋 #Toronto #Montreal #documentary #whales #environment #podcast #celebrity I am a: #environmentalist #influencer #entrepreneur #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

@abacusagency’s @katmunt offered to take this selfie with her long arms, after I interviewed her about paid social media and found out if it could help me gain millions of fans. Or just, like, more than my current zero number of fans. 📱 On Nov 16, my fellow #SMWTO volunteer @rachtraynor filmed me at this @SMWiToronto @brightlaneinc lunch with @mcdonaldscanada food.

Nov 16: Thanks to @tiff_net for the @smwitoronto behind-the-scenes tour of TIFF Bell Lightbox. I live above the building but was unaware of the offices and projection rooms beneath me. I’m like a shamefully ignorant Phantom of the Opera. I’ll float downstairs any time to interview you about the latest TIFF news! 🎥 For footage from the tour, see my Nov 16 vlog at http://ift.tt/2fCIaz6 & http://youtube.com/joshrachlis 🎤 #SMWTO #Toronto #socialmedia #socialmediamarketing #SocialMediaJobs‬ #cdnfilm I am a: #entrepreneur #influencer #minimalist #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


I interview @pelacase’s @suntasem and find out if I’d be a good ambassador for their eco-friendly phone cases.
