139 The Incredible Jessica James: A RomCom Done Right (Movie Review)
While in Portland, we watched The Incredible Jessica James on Netflix and LOVED it! This week, we’re talking about why it’s so good.
In This Episode
We fell in love with The Incredible Jessica James, a new Netflix original movie starring Jessica Williams from The Daily Show and the 2 Dope Queens podcast. It’s real, sweet, funny and highly relatable; a fast favorite.
Upcoming Event Highlight
- 2nd Annual People of Color: Animal Rights, Advocacy and Food Justice Conference (in UCLA) – we highly, highly, highly recommend this conference for anyone in the area or anyone who can make it. We will be in London this year while this is happening, unfortunately, but we went last year and found it invaluable.
Please go and support this event if you can!
