Part rant-o-riffic cross talk from the edge, part no-holds-barred delving into the dark stuff often left unsaid, complete with a soundtrack to die for, OZY CONFIDENTIAL is a SXSW for people, personalities and weirdly wild notions about what we reveal and what we most want to conceal. OZY's Editor-at-Large Eugene S. Robinson gets heavy, deep and real with everyone from a world-renowned Nietzsche scholar who left behind a Ph.D. for life as a crack addict to a suicidal former Marine who found redemption in a bar of soap. Chaotic and raw, on OZY CONFIDENTIAL, the form fits the function.

    From a Ph.D. in Physics to High Heels and Glitter

    Taiwan-born Renee Wu quit her job at Microsoft and left the Ph.D. program in physics that she was in to swirl around ceiling-to-floor steel poles, high-heeled shoes, scant outfits and, yeah, well, a very definite kind of artistic freedom. It’s one thing to dream about following your muse; something else entirely to dump Microsoft for a life uncertain wearing pasties on a pole.

    When My Daughter Became My Son

    When My Daughter Became My Son

    When Karen Barnes wanted to find a way to tell her family at large what she had been struggling to understand herself — that one of her twin daughters had embraced a realization that she was a trans man — she figured it was easiest to do in one fell swoop. Much less a story about the difficulty of accepting the acceptable than a story about how best to survive. As a person. As a family.
