    Jess welcomes the one true queen of Summer House — Lindsay Hubbard! We go deep on everything, including Summer House’s entry into the canon via Vanderpump Rules, a listening tour of the Hamptons, Lindsay’s family history, and whether she identifies more as a PR publicist guru vs. reality star these days. We also discuss Lindsay’s Sun/Moon/Rising signs, an off-camera crazy dating story, fans (including Jess) ‘shipping’ Lindsay & Carl Radke, the “psychic” who started the Luke/Linds rumor, and ponder if Hannah Berner is the true villain of Summer House.

Great podcast

Jess is such a great interviewer! Love every podcast now that she’s on her own. Even when Jess interviews guests I don’t know, I’m always intrigued & entertained 🙌🏻
