On this Tea on the Hudson podcast episode, Jen shares her drink of the week, the news, and then sits down for an exclusive interview with Jaclyn and Steven Fulop, the first family of Jersey City. Jaclyn shares about her growing physical therapy business and Steve talks about life as mayor + how they balance it all. We chat about their life in the area, how they met, their favorite neighborhood spots, a typical day in the life, plans for next year’s 4th of July extravaganza in Jersey City, and even the show they can’t stop binging on Netflix.

Then, Jen chats with Hoboken Girl contributor and self-care expert Sara of House of Healer about her experience with a local Shaman — what that entails, and how it all works.

We end with our hidden gem — a farm in Jersey City Heights called Urban Quack that is worth a walk by {they even sell fresh eggs!}, the Hudson Hero/Zero, and the non-profit you must donate to this week — the Liberty Humane Society, which Jaclyn works with on a regular basis.

Episode mentions include:

Empire Coffee & Tea, Exchange Physical Therapy, City of Hoboken, Orange Theory Jersey City, Urban Quack JC, Razza, Gringo’s, U2, Eric Legrand, Hudson Yoga Project, 107 Bowers, Bread and Salt, House of Healer, Liberty Humane Society, Alfalfa, the #FallinLoveWithHoboken contest, Hidden Grounds, and more.
