Bridget Phetasy is a writer, comedian and Twitter addict. Once the iconic “Playboy Advisor” for Playboy magazine’s monthly advice column, Bridget now maintains a bi-weekly editorial for Mel Magazine’s digital website and can be found on The New York Post, The Huffington Post, The Federalist, Medium, and Patreon, among others. When she’s not writing online, Bridget is making videos, penning her self-help books and working on numerous scripted ideas with her producing partner (and cousin!), Maggie, that if kept in her mind, will only drive her mad. She is the host of Ricochet’s Walk-Ins Welcome Podcast.
Jessica Michelle Singleton, stand-up comedian, bonds with Bridget over their mutually dysfunctional upbringings. They compare notes about raised by parents with borderline or narcissistic personalities, processing trauma with dark humor, overcoming abandonment issues, and the disassociation that makes them feel like robots or aliens – observing people who miss their families is very odd to them. In a frank and hilarious conversation, Jessica shares her story of moving to Alaska from Mississippi as a child, being left at a Waffle Hut by her dad, being raised by an alcoholic mother, and discovering a hidden family secret at 19. They talk the struggles and joys of stand-up comedy, living with a scarcity mindset, the terror of accepting love and not running from intimacy, and how we all struggle with some form of mental illness.
