JD and Denise have a drink and ... a big ol' chat with actor, writer, producer, animal lover Jill Bennett, who tells us about life in L.A. lockdown and how she's been keeping busy (and sharp!) Also, big news on some very cool future projects and a little tea spilled on wife, Lauren Neal's latest project - writing, directing a Hyundai car commercial that debuted at the GLAAD Media Awards (available on YouTube to see). We had some intense convo on animals, too- from squirrels to cats to pitbulls. Well, come on. We're lesbians, of course we did. To view this show on our YouTube channel, click this link. 

JD and Denise have some cocktails (Coffee with Coffee Infused Vodka, and a classic Whiskey Sour) tonight while Denise introduces her friend of over 30 years, Debbie Savigliano, the founder of Bianca's Kids, a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity Organization out of New Jersey that grants wishes to families and children in need. Debbie shares the story behind starting the organization after losing her 21 year old niece, Bianca, who was struck and killed by a car as she walked to work at a daycare center early one August morning. Debbie shifted her grief into creating Bianca's Kids to honor her niece and the results have been incredible as the group has now granted over 30,000 wishes for kids all over the country and continues to do good with donations in all forms from time and goods to checks.

We do a little wander through the "old" times and lot about "these days".We've got options, too:  To view the video of this show, click on this link .
