Jess is joined by bonafide rock icon Melissa Etheridge! We mention it all, including her early Hollywood friendships with Rosie O’Donnell, Ellen and Brad Pitt, how she was initially discovered, nearly being outed when her first record was released and her wife Linda Wallem (Nurse Jackie co-creator/writer). We also go behind the music, getting the stories that inspired “Bring Me Some Water,” “Brave and Crazy” and “Similar Features” as well as her new album featuring songs written 30 years ago that she felt were “too gay” to release at the time.
