Today you’ll hear my conversation with Jessie Artigue, she is literally one of my podcasting heros. It was an absolute honor to have the opportunity to chat with this lady!
Let me give you a little bit of context; Jessie lives in sunny Long Beach, California with her husband Gerard and their puppy dog, Sadie Mae. You guys may know this gorgeous lady from her hilariously entertaining podcast Marriage is Funny which she co-hosts alongside her husband. And most recently she’s branched out as the solo host of The Perfect Wife podcast (which I’ve currently already binge listened to)🎧
She’s a style expert by trade and spent former years as a professional journalist. In this episode she shares [for the first time ever] the NEW exciting project she’s been working on, to be launched in 2017!
Oddly enough, I discovered the Marriage is Funny podcast through instagram, from a post from Jess Lively a while back. Like many people I binge listened to their episodes and found them SO relatable. I have to say that their show has brought up conversations between my husband and I , where I’ve honestly learned some things I never knew about him! Which is saying a lot because I’ve known the guy since 2004.
I’m just incredibly grateful for both Jessie & Gerard for being so vulnerable and for sharing their light with the world. It’s obvious they pour a great deal of time, energy, and love into the show. And most importantly they remind us all that we are not alone.
