Great

A totally unique listening experience. Gripping, complex, deeply thought provoking and poignant, this podcast opened my eyes to a new world. It spurred some great conversations on a long road trip across the country. Very well done!

Amanda and her team have taken a difficult, hard to even hear about situation and made a very compelling story about it. As someone who probably would never have heard of Adrian‘s story without the podcast, I went from being mildly interested to now wanting to know everything I can about Adree. I am very interested in how she does after surgery – how does it feel to now actually have a woman’s body.
How does she adjust in the all female prison? And also finally how does she do when she gets out of prison.
The podcast has created a picture of Adree as a complex, bright, struggling woman.An incredibly determined woman to be true to herself. I congratulate you all on a tremendous job!
