    The Parents Transition

    The Parents Transition

    Parenthood is hard. Of course there are great parts, rewarding, exciting, loving parts. But a lot of it is terrifying and confronting. What if you knew your child was heavily depressed and was giving suicidal hints? What if you found out the reason for that was because they were incredibly unhappy with the gender they were assigned at birth?
    What if on the edge of puberty you found out it was no longer possible for them to pretend any longer. They wanted to be the opposite sex. They wanted to transition.

    Content warning: this episode addresses childhood mental illness and suicide. For help, children can contact Kids helpline on 1800 55 1800. Adults can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.

    The Sceptical Psychic

    The Sceptical Psychic

    When I think of the stereotypical psychic I think of a middle aged woman with a crystal ball and flowing clothes, lots of candles and crystals. But David is the opposite, youthful, super intellectual, his last job was working in criminal prosecution. He wears designer labels and hangs out with the cool kids. It's almost jolting to see his gifts in action. Before he worked as a medium psychic he was a sceptic.

    You can follow David and his predictions on Instagram @davidthemedium or Facebook.

    The Mistress

    The Mistress

    What do you know about BDSM? Is it what you have seen in Bollywood films, read about in 50 shades of grey or have you experienced it first hand? Mistress Eva takes us deep inside her dungeon and shares the intimate world of being a mistress. We talk about who these people are that seek her services, how much it costs to worship her and how far she is willing to go to take someone to the edge of their desires. The most shocking part - this isn't "just" Eva's work, she doesn't clock off after a shift, this is her full time way of life.

    Content warning: The episode is extremely explicit. It contains graphic descriptions of sexual acts.

    You can check out Eva's website and follow her on Instagram @youwillplease_me.
