On this week’s episode of LRR Jess gets an education from an extremely charismatic guest, Harley! Harley teaches Jess about what it’s like to date while being fat and queer. They discuss body positivity, avoiding being fetishized, vetting men/women who are interested for the wrong reasons, becoming a type, and so much more! Jess could not have picked a better guest for this topic, because even when she acts naive questions, Harley takes it all in stride. It’s a big, beautiful episode so tune in now!
On this weeks episode of LRR, Jess welcomes back former guest Emily Wiebe to discuss one of Emily’s passions - astrology! The girls discuss what the difference between sun, moon, and rising signs is, and how there’s actually a different sign for every planet (hey, who knew?!). They then dive into Jess’ astrology chart to explain some of her behaviour and personality traits, as well as what kind of man she might be best paired with. They wrap up by giving some advice on what to do if astrology says you might not be a good fit with a partner! This one is very interesting, tune in now!
This week Jess took some time to assess the Black Lives Matter situation and shares some resources she found helpful as well as some thoughts she had had while learning about what it means to be anti racist opposed to not racist. Marc the Producer joins in on the second half, with intentions to talk about a dating topic, but they end up discussing the protests, defunding the police, and other things related to the situation together a fair bit more. Honestly, we tried to get back to business as usual but given the drastic change of topic they just don’t feel like talking about it, so they ended up scrapping it! We do what we want around here!
