Jes Scheinpflug and Tiffany Favers met in the early days of the pandemic on a dating app. The first few months of their relationship were entirely over Zoom and FaceTime. Since then, they’ve connected in person, and a few weeks ago they recorded an interview together for StoryCorps Chicago. Tiffany began by telling the story of their first meeting in real life.
This interview was facilitated by StoryCorps Chicago’s Mary Bess Ser.
