This is a show for non-cis people by non-cis people. Two poly transpeople, to be specific. Marissa Alexa McCool and Ari Stillman get together about all the cis things going on without taking their feelings into consideration. If this bothers you, consider how many places we have to do that in comparison to you.

We won't be fair, we won't be rational, and we won't make any effort to be impartial, objective, or deferential. This is mostly for us to have a place with no people to tell us "not all..."

sparkle

full of intelligence, compassion & humor - it may be directed to the "non-cis" but I believe this would be enjoyable for reasonable people of all persuasions.

Comedy and Representation

1. The comedy is top notch and I ball in public from laughter its so great.

2. Also, one of the hosts is non-binary and the other doesn’t exclude enby people in conversation and totally respects their pronouns. Plus, occasionally, the discussion goes onto enby topics which is super fun too.

I love this podcast also since it doesn’t set off my social dysphoria around being enby so it’s a podcast where I can let my guard down.
