Listen!

I’ve been lucky enough to work with Jess & it’s really great to see her curiosity, humor, & intelligence used so beautifully. Go fricken listen!

Jess Fisher Rocks! A Must Listen.

Jess Fisher’s ridiculously unique humor is only matched by her heightened conversational prowess and distinctive personality. This Tik Tok star joins the podcast scene with a bang featuring conversations ranging from Keeping Up with the Kardashians to the correlation between Frankenstein’s Monster and Marx.

Each of her guests may present a new and refreshing essay each week, but Jess anchors the ship through her ownership of the airwaves and calculated questions which almost always result in extended discussion and new perspectives. You also get to meet some pretty cool people along the way.

Make sure not to miss this. New Episodes every Monday.

A window into the worldview of young artists

There are literally thousands of podcasts. What makes this one special is that it is a window into the worldview of young artists. Podcasts are as good as the host and the guests. Jess Fisher is an extraordinary thinker and writer with an extraordinary database and sense of curiousity. Her guests may not be world famous…yet, but this is a portal to the people who will change the world through their creativity, drive and passion. Expect it to be offbeat, original and compelling.
