I have been a fan of Jess for over a year. She is a fantastic, thoughtful interviewer. I love the unique questions she comes up with for the guests. Bringing in different co-hosts to gossip and gab on the different franchises brings an added flavor to the show. Catching up on my trash tv podcasts is the highlight of my week. She’s also super accessible - loves chatting with podcast listeners on IG DM.
Honestly I am very confused on the handful of 1 star reviews. Obviously they are not listeners and have ulterior motives like pushing another podcast. It’s really a shame people do stuff like that to try to bring down a podcast ratings.

Patty

Bwahaha. Self diagnosing herself with Covid. Sounds about right for her. She needs to go away for awhile and get her mental state checked with that talk. Wowzers. And the couples in quarantine advice? What person without a brain does not know this? Omgaad she’s losing it. Talk talk talk with nothing that others don’t know 😂

So glad I found Jess’s new podcast! I have been missing her interviews. She’s the most intelligent, insightful, articulate...podcaster in the sport of reality programming!
