Super Engaging and Informative!

I love this podcast. It’s almost like eavesdropping on a conversation amongst friends. I love the relatability of the guests and of Leo. Great interviews, great banter and even greater info on each episode. I look forward to witnessing this podcast evolve!

Representation and Perspective Matters

There’s not very much media that features trans people of color so that alone brings a different experience and perspective to all the topics discussed and the conversations that are had on the show. Refreshing and a very welcome change!

Must Listen!!

Love Leo’s ability to connect with his guests and get to the heart of what makes them unique!
