    Ep 219 - New Year Who Dis and Other Stuff

    Guys, it's the Season 2 Finale and technical difficulties got us going out in some kind of way. Never fear, though, audio quality aside, you can tell it's going to be good when Jess immediately forgets her name, Joi reveals the best gift for the Gen Zer in your life, and Jess learns how to Google. Groundbreaking stuff, this.

    Don't forget! You can purchase your very own copy of Joi's book, "Beautiflawed: The New Definition of Beauty" at Amazon.com or at JoiSimpson.com

    Ep. 218 - Beautiflawed and Other Stuff

    Guys, the day we've been waiting for is HERE! Joi has released her book "Beautiflawed: The New Definition of Beauty." We're so excited for this book and the message inside, so we're spending (most of) the episode chatting about all things Beautiflawed. We do get a little digression in towards the end. Don't worry. AND, we even throw in some technical difficulties right at the end.

    You can purchase your very own copy of Beautiflawed at Amazon.com or at JoiSimpson.com

    Ep 217 - Only a Hippopotamus and Other Stuff

    Ep 217 - Only a Hippopotamus and Other Stuff

    It starts weird and it doesn’t get any better, guys. The girls cover a lot of ground from the perils of directing the school play to JOI’S NEW BOOK (Available December 20th) to porcine regulations and why an Egg McMuffin costs so much. Jess wraps things up with a benediction and we promise there’s nothing extra in our beverages.

    Ep. 216 - Sugar Daddies, Cougars and Cubs, and Other Stuff

    It's a very revealing episode, guys. Find out why we both hate Jurassic Park, how to mentally prepare for a trip to Jamaica, and why older dudes are hit and miss in the dating scene. Also, Joi turns 40 and reflects on her newly-expanded dating pool. (BTW, we're accepting applications for the role of "Joi's Suitor" at podcast@joiandjess.com).

    Ep 215 - Thanksgiving and Other Stuff

    It's the day after Thanksgiving, and we are full of food and thankful hearts. In today's episode, we shout out some of the people we are thankful for, as well as an organization truly doing the Lord's work in Tema, Ghana. City of Refuge Ministries exists to be the rescuing hands of Jesus for kids that are sold into slavery. They work with the Community to rescue and restore victims of human trafficking by providing a safe place for these precious kids to heal, get an education, and meet Jesus. To learn more about CORM and help them meet their $15,000 fundraising goal, check out cormghana.org.

    Ep. 0214 - Reunited and It Feels So Good and Other Stuff

    We're back! Jess has made her way across the country, and we're not sure if it's the time difference, but get ready for some wacky hijinks! (Please imagine that last part said in an over-the-top 80's voiceover guy voice). The whole episode is a digression, honestly, but if you need some laughter in your life, this is the episode from you!
