    Singing Our Gender: Interview with Rascal Miles

    Trans/Non-Binary artist Rascal Miles is part of a new wave and generation of artists emerging into the music scene who are well familiar with challenge and adversity but who are excelling because of it and not being defined by it. Rascal has been working towards the release of music that is personal and elevated and sets them on the path of the next stage in their music journey. That day is almost here as Rascal prepares to release new song 'Tailor Made', which deals with the experience of top surgery.

Love the information shared in this podcast.

I love everything that Alex brings to the table and makes me think about.

If I had any feedback, I wish the audio quality were a little better, I feel like I have to turn the volume way up on this podcast to be able to hear it clearly.

This is a wonderful podcast

I'm still figuring out my identity and Alex's story and perspective have helped me out a lot. They have a very wonderful voice that is relaxing and hearing someone reminisce about what I'm going through right now is something I needed. A lot of people could use this.

Every episode has me learning and thinking

I'm a therapist with an undergrad degree in gender studies. I consume quite a lot of media about gender and I learn something from every single episode of this podcast. If I'm walking or driving while listening I'm often having sto stop to Google something, or rewind to catch the name of a person or resource. I really appreciate the mishmosh of realness and big ideas, vulnerability and academic smarts, and the clear sense of genuine connection between Alex and their guests. So good.
