Our conversation with Julia and John covers a ton of ground – from the Atlanta restuarant scene and non-alcoholic cocktails to solitude and skin care.

Julia Bainbridge was most recently Food Editor of Atlanta Magazine, and is an accomplished writer with work in everything from Bon Appetit to Playboy. She's the creator and host of The Lonely Houra podcast about loneliness–but it’s not a bummer. Julia has created a space to talk openly in hopes of both de-stigmatizing loneliness and underscoring the joys of solitude.

John’s one of the biggest cocktail and bar experts out there. He got his start at PDT, and has spent many years with Momofuku. He is now working on writing his debut book and creating a nonprofit that will improve the daily lives of professional restaurant workers.
