It’s so lovely to hear these things vocalised and I’m sure for newcomers in the industry, incredibly useful and reassuring. Enjoy your work and enjoy your process y’all xoxo

Love this

I’ve only listened to the first two so far but I can’t wait to hear the rest!! While succinct episodes, they manage to draw out and put together some deeply profound ideas and perspectives on queer and trans experience and I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to listen in and learn.

Compelling, impactful stories

I’ve binged this today... From the gentle music beds to the structure to the narratives and the storytelling, this is a beautifully produced podcast :) Recommending to queer, trans and straight friends x
