Really interesting and well researched
I’ve really learnt a lot about trans history from this podcast, I always listen to new episodes as soon as they come out. It comes across really clearly how knowledgable Morgan is on this subject and she always seems genuinely interested in what she’s talking about, which adds to the enjoyment of listening
Fabulous and informative
Very well researched. X
