    The last episode of season 2 is Jason's detailed description of life as someone who binds their chest to flatten it. It's not just the aches and pains you'd expect. He talks about difference between how it felt in the beginning vs. now and why he feels trapped in the world of binding. After years of muscle and nerve damage, it hurts to wear one and after it's taken off!!! Tune in to find out what it's really like to smoosh your body into an extreme compression tank top almost everyday for a few years...

    Episode Twenty-Three: Hindsight is 20/20

    This week Jason spends some time looking at the indicators throughout his life that help reinforce his being trans. He also talks about how lessons learned along the way have changed the way he looks at the past, present, and future. We often say, "If I'd only known then what I know now!" and Jason does his best to explain what exactly that means for him and his transition. From boy clothes/toys/playmates to deeper existential coincidences, listen in to hear more about what has become more clear to Jason throughout this journey.

Klm28 ,

So excited for the 2nd season!

I can’t wait for the next season to start! Jason does a great job of breaking down various areas of understanding his transgender journey. It is very relatable while respecting everyone’s different perspectives and experiences. Jason is very articulate and respectful of each topic. I wish all topics were handled with the finesse Jason provides in each of his episodes. If you haven’t heard one yet, give it a try!

Amazing conversationalist, engaging speaker

I heard Jason speak at our UU congregation in 2019. He spoke so confidently and charismatically - he was a joy to listen to. I shared a few brief words with him after the service and he was so tender and attentive while he answered my questions about responsible parenting in terms of gender and identity.
