Email Address: 
Theater Performer, Actress, Comedian, Writer and Show Host
Joya Mia grew up in Littleton, Colorado, before earning her BA from Sarah Lawrence College with concentrations in Theater, Writing and Political Economics.  She later worked to live in peanut shells all across New York City, and appeared in numerous plays and comedy shorts.  She relocated to Los Angeles to star as John Connor in Terminator Too: Judgment Play, as well as Tyler in Point Break Live!, LA's longest-running theater show. She currently plays Meg Ryan in Tom Gun Live, showing monthly at the Catch One Nightclub. When not clowning, Joya writes, hustles, and waxes philosophical. She formerly hosted 'Oh, That's a Thing!' - a podcast about the real "stuff"(science, tech, history, etc.) in sci-fi movies. 
Joya ​wants emotional and intellectual stimulation, and she knows she's not the only one! Whether they're "hot-button issues" or "under-the-radar, geekout stories," Joya hopes to have raw and honest discussions about things women (and men) want, and she's able to "find the funny" even while getting raw.

Men often ask, "What do women want?" To give a simple answer, we can say, IT'S COMPLICATED! For ourselves, our relationships, and our wallets.  Women want different things at different times in life. Join us - Joya, Patty, and Luisa - as we embark on a quest to help answer that age-old question in 'Things Women Want.' We explore questions dealing with love, relationships, politics, finance, and more. Three women, two coasts, and a whole lot of different opinions!
