Grateful

This podcast made me trans. Thanks Tuck!

JBULUT ,

Fantastic podcast!

I’m a melodramatic person, but I’m NOT being melodramatic when I say that this podcast has changed my life, and the way I see the world. Thank you Tuck!

podcast of the highest calibre

This show is amazing; I can't recommend it enough. I've been listening for a few months but was moved to write this review by the recent episode with Jules Gill-Peterson, who was just freaking incredible. I was, at various points, slack-jawed with awe, kind of crying, cracking up. A tour de force. Thank you to Tuck and everyone involved in this show for your interviews, your advocacy both tacit and explicit, and for connecting listeners to all these rad people we need to know about.
