SEEN is a show about identity that asks: How are you seen? Labels are complicated, communication is challenging, identity is nuanced. None of us are exactly as we appear to strangers, friends, or even ourselves. And yet, now more than ever we are all trying to be SEEN. 
Feeling seen is powerful. To honor that power, the SEEN podcast asks guests to prepare a list recounting the ways they been viewed, judged, rendered invisible, or wholly seen by themselves, their loved ones, and strangers. With the SEEN List as our guide, a conversation about experienced and presumed identities unfolds with one central question asked: How are you seen?
Host Miranda Wylie's SEEN List ranges from her childhood label of "preacher's daughter," to her adult persona of "sexpert." Her desire to create a platform for others' rich and complicated stories lead to the creation of BedPost Confessions, an award-winning live storytelling show that “stuns audiences with the power of story” (The Austin Chronicle). The ex-New Yorker turned Austinite is a storyteller who advocates for sexual literacy and emotional justice, and whose feminist lens serves her in raising two young boys in Texas.

    #3 Whitney Stafford: I'm the solution

    Two words repeatedly used during 2016 election coverage stung Whitney Stafford with truth and clarity: “gaslighting” and “bully.” Whitney’s Seen List reveals a history of being bullied by her brother, ignored by her family, and only recently having a conversation with her Trump-supporting father in which she felt acknowledged and seen. As Whitney describes it: “the scoreboard was gone.”

An incredible and intimate way to talk about identities

Miranda is a deep, thoughtful, playful, and deft host. Her guests are amazing and the conversations allow for an amazing and quick dive into topics that are often hard to access or talk about. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful show!

Seen

Seen with Miranda is an compelling podcast about identity, the way we are seen in the world, and the way we want to be seen. Miranda asks direct and daring questions in a way that helps the guest feel safe enough to really open up and be vulnerable. I am a sex therapist and psychotherapist in Philadelphia and regularly share episodes with my colleagues and clients. Episodes are
incredibly moving. Funny. Smart. I can’t wait for the second season.
