Jess has teamed up with her best friend and TV icon, Denise Drysdale, for a new weekly podcast titled One Fat Lady and One Thin Lady. Recorded live at Jess’ dining room table, Jess and Denise compare their very personal, hilarious and candid tales of family, work, relationships and all the bits in between that we call ‘life.’

Feedback
Jessica was a late replacement and as such probably hadn't had too much opportunity to prepare. Her performance as MC was outstanding, she was on the ball from the start and clearly found some very interesting topics were being discussed. Her level of enthusiasm around the conference meant she was constantly engaging the speakers in a real way and challenging those who needed to be challenged. National Homelessness Conference
