In 2006, Chicago Red Eye relationship columnist Gina B. came to interview Jen Lancaster after the release of her first memoir, Bitter Is the New Black. Eight hours, and as many bottles of wine later, they decided to become the best of friends.
By day, host Gina B. is a high-level executive recruiter. By night, she's a skin care entrepreneur, having created her own line of holistic products called Naturals by Gina B. She's also a media personality, as an active member of Chicago's Six Brown Chicks blogging team. Gina always has the scoop on the most happening clubs, the best live music, and the hottest restaurants, in Chicago, New York, and LA.
Host Jen has written fifteen books, including memoir, women's contemporary fiction, and young adult novels, which is why it pretty much takes an act of Congress to get her to leave the suburbs and come down to the city. She can tell you nothing about happening clubs, music, or restaurants, but everything about which grocery store has the best organic produce. She is usually putting on pajamas when Gina is going out.
Despite being polar opposites on paper, Gina and Jen agree on everything, save for their feelings about J. Lo. And really, how often does she come up?
Jen and Gina are lucky to have the services of DJ Lee Farmer, co-owner of The TCG Collective, mixing their sound and playing them in and out of breaks.
