This week on The JellyVision Show we talk to author, Jenny Cutler Lopez about her powerful book, Who I AM: American Scar Stories. Jenny photographed and interviewed people with life altering scars and documented their personal stories in this gorgeous book. The stories are uplifting and inspirational! Do you have a scar story? Jenny is collecting mini scar stories on instagram. Our very own, Alexis and Tim are both featured! Make sure to check them out. Jenny has a lot more books coming, so please follow her ON TWITTER and get in touch if you have an extreme scar story! You may end up in the next edition.
Because we were so moved by the stories in Jenny's book, we invited
Lilly Cornea on the show. Lilly is known as "The Girl Who Can't Cry". Lilly's problem has baffled doctors who have determined that there is nothing physically wrong with her. Even after the tragic death of her mother, Lilly didn't shed a tear. We invited her on the show in the hope that she would feel some emotion after hearing some powerful Scar Stories.
Find out if Lilly finally cries on this amazing episode of The JellyVision Show that may leave you scarred!
**Special thanks to improviser, Tori Clodfelter, who played Lilly. You can see Tori perform all over the place. She is a Comedy Sports performer at The Comedy Spot in Arlington. She is also a troupe member of Last Ham Standing. Follow Tori on Twitter @ToriClods

In this episode we have a returning guest and a challenge. Poet, artist & writer, Shelly Bell contacted us a couple of months ago to see if we would participate in her current social project, Shelly's Belly. In order to confront her issues with gaining normal pregnancy weight, Shelly decided to get her friends and family involved by asking them to cook healthy meals for her for under $50 and then eat together. She was overwhelmed by the positive response and has been eating delicious, healthy meals up and down the east coast.
Shelly gave us $50 and a couple of foods to avoid and we had our challenge!
The JellyVision Team decided to make a Spinach & Artichoke Quinoa Bake from Two Peas and Their Pod. and chocolate covered strawberries (made up recipe) for dessert. It was all super delicious and we could barely stop eating to record this episode. You can probably hear us eating. We are grateful to Shelly for inviting us to participate in what could become a real social movement. This was a fantastic experiment--we all felt like we bonded on a whole new level after cooking a meal together. Then, to share it with friends and have a good (recorded) conversation..what could be better?
We talk about food, social norms, activism, dreams, parenting, privilege, education motivation, commitment and even sensory deprivation chambers. Enjoy! And if you have a minute, please subscribe and rate us on itunes or Stitcher! Sweet!
