In today’s episode, Jess sits down with TV director Michael Medico to discuss the most influential moments of their past, including the death of loved ones, the loss of relationships, and how they are both discovering new and unexpected passions.
Michael shares how as a child, his mother’s mental illness helped shape his ability as a performer to think about people’s emotional needs and how he and his partner, Brian, now approach modeling a “realistic relationship” for their children. And in a way only good friends can do, Michael brings Jess to tears with some very kind words about what it means to be a true mother and nurturer.
