    s04e79 | Trauma, Transition, & an Intersex Condition: a Detrans Story, with Theo

    Theo shares about her childhood medical and sexual trauma, wrestling with a Disorder of Sexual Development so rare it's still got an incredibly awkward name, and how she used transition to process her life—only to realize that radical self-acceptance with her natural body and difficult history was the right choice for her.

Invaluable

Thank you so much, Benjamin Boyce, for these enlightening conversations. You do a great job as an interviewer: asking probing, intelligent questions; allowing guests plenty of time to share their experiences and insights. I love this podcast.

Healing and refreshing

Benjamin has refined an art form that we need now more than ever. He allows and draws out emotional conversations that are no doubt therapeutic to his guests but engage our culture in uncomfortable but necessary reflection. Thank you Benjamin. Please, please continue your work.
