In this episode shot on location in Brooklyn, NY, Jess sits down with journalist and “Gen-Z whisperer” Taylor Trudon. Known for her savvy awareness of teens and youth culture, Taylor also provides an insightful and vulnerable account of her own personal challenges and successes, discussing her plights as an “overachiever,” the fallbacks of finding your identity through work, and learning to fight toxic perfectionism.
Throughout their conversation, Jess and Taylor reflect on the importance of vulnerability, the fact that not all dreams were meant to come true, and that we can always use our past experiences to support and engage with those who are younger than us. Taylor’s version of a Good Life includes weekly doses of therapy, an urgency to share her own stories, and a reminder that done is better than perfect.
