Legendary beauty editor Jean Godfrey June is our guest, and we’re talking all things beauty in midlife: skincare, haircare, dark spots, NECKS, lasers, fillers, Botox, the best mascara for thinning lashes, SPF for your hands, and if those strange LED masks really work. Plus: Listener questions! Tune in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. And hey, wouldn’t now be an excellent time to subscribe to our Patreon for all sorts of exclusive content, including monthly live events?
We’ve got author and humor columnist Kimberly Harrington on the show, and we’re talking about her excellent new book, But You Seemed So Happy, which is about divorce in general and her highly unconventional divorce in particular, and explores the many outdated stigmas surrounding the decision not to be married anymore. This may sound like a bummer of an episode, but it’s quite the opposite—Kimberly’s hilarious—so give it a listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. And why not join our Patreon? We’ve got a Patreon-only live Zoom event happening this coming Thursday—the last one was super-fun— and it’s not too late for you to be a part of it.
It’s me and Jenn doing our one-on-one thing this week, and we cover many topics, including but not limited to: loving boring and uncool things like (for me) the band Chicago, and (for Jen) talking about spaghetti squash. Plus! Complicated sibling relationships, answering a listener’s question about shoes, the pleasures of watching shows about women over 40, laser treatments, Sandra Oh, podcasts we love and, weirdly, a whole lot more. Do tune in, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get podcasts. And do please join our Patreon! We’ve got another live event coming up soon—along with a lot of other cool stuff—and the more of you who are there the better by far.
