Jess does a great job of leading the interview to make it feel more like a conversation. Looking forward to more episodes!
Listens to stuff
Let's face it, some podcasts are garbage. This is the opposite of garbage. You won't be mad about using up space on your phone for this one, even if you use data to download it.
It's really, really good.
SO MUCH YES
I immediately felt like I wasn't alone after listening to this show. Like the universe reached out and gave me a gigantic hug. I have been waiting for a series like this and I am so excited for what is yet to come. As Chuck Palahniuk once said, "A good story should make you laugh, and a moment later break your heart." This is exactly what Jess does. She takes life's complexities and dark heavy parts and literally lightens them up with dry humor and authenticity. If you want to embrace the heartaches and headaches that you feel alone with then I would absolutely recommend this show for you... OR if you just happen to be a human being then this show is for you.
