“Come for the hope. Stay for the dogs.”
Jessie and Tilly talk about everything from what hope means to them, what excites them in this first season of the podcast, and how they first bonded on Zoom over Tilly’s link to Miley Cyrus, Jessie’s houseboat life and their mutual dog obsession.
Tilly reveals she’s an Archer’s megafan and Jessie recites lines from ‘You Sexy Thing’ in the introduction to our Hope In A Hurry section — which will become a regular feature in each episode — as they share a hopeful read, watch, listen and anthem.
