    What Real Cis Acceptance Looks Like

    Episode Number: 5

    This week’s topic is one that’s really important and involves the cis folks out there just as much as it involves any transgender person. We’re talking about What Real Cis Acceptance Looks Like (and cis folks, please spread the word on this)! We're joined by the multi-talented Laser, whose new solo album Overreacting is out February 10! Remember: trans is just another kind of woman you can be, and every trans person is valid. YES, even YOU. You'll also learn about the lexicon of maleness, bros starting fires, and how no one has a writing career anymore!

    Trans Roles and Stories

    Episode Number: 4

    This week is all about trans roles in media, and trans stories... also in media (that's where stories go, I don't make the rules). Rather than discussing specific stories and roles, we're going to talk about who gets to tell those stories, and who gets to play those roles, and why. Is my voice still sore? Yes. Will you notice? Also yes. We're joined by actress and certified funny lady Eileen Noonan (her webseries Smoosh is coming soon!), and hey... Chris Hemsworth's arms are feminist icons!

    Trans Representation in 2022 media

    Episode Number: 3

    It's our trans rep in 2022 media retrospective, covering the good, the bad, and the confusing trans (and trans-adjacent) content across 20+ movies and 60+ seasons of television I saw last year! There's also talk about when transition ends, and discussion about how we all smell (wouldn't you like to know). Apologies for my scratchy voice, we recorded this the day after I ran a TTPRG game and talked for an entire afternoon, and it shows. This week we're joined by comic writer supreme, Lilah Sturges (her book "The Science of Ghosts" is out later this year!). We're gonna push it to 14 and get Spock ears for everyone, do not question the Blahaj!

    Specific media discussed: Bros, Thor Love and Thunder, Wendell and Wild, Cobra Kai, The Expanse, The Flight Attendant, Gentleman Jack, I Am Groot, A League of Their Own, Loot, Los Espookys, Never Have I Ever, Only Murders in the Building, Our Flag Means Death, Paper Girls, The Peripheral, Queer as Folk, Reservation Dogs, Resident Alien, Russian Doll, Rutherford Falls, Severance, She-Hulk, Star Trek Discovery, Star Trek Prodigy, Star Trek Strange New Worlds, Upload, Wellington Paranormal, Westworld, Quantum Leap, Heartstopper

    The Past, and Why it Haunts Us

    Episode Number: 2

    This week we’re discussing something that likely haunts every trans person who transitions as an adult. Hop in your chair and initiate splinter sequence, because it’s time to talk about: THE PAST. There's also talk of Rocky Horror, bows, Pooh bears, leisure suits (?), and Susan absolutely blows Tilly's mind with an observation on her lifelong love of Superman! We're joined once again by that queen of the audio realm, Jillian Morgan!
