In perhaps her most personal episode yet, Jess sits down for a candid conversation with her husband and acclaimed woodworker, Felipe Lopez. It’s their first public interview together and they delve into Felipe’s upbringing in Mexico City, the loss of his cousin to HIV/Aids, and of course, the journey of their relationship as a couple who married later in life and are childless by choice.
Felipe, a self described feminist, bravely shares his questioning of the toxic masculinity present in his culture. This touching and inspiring dialogue between husband and wife reminds us that as we seek out living The Good Life, or “La Buena Vida,” having a partner along for the ride can make all the difference.
We encourage you to stick around for the following episode, where Felipe and Jess are confronted with some shocking and life-altering losses that came only a few months after this initial recording, yet continue to shape their dialogue around The Good Life while balancing death, loss and grief.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
