Years ago, a therapist said in our very first session that there are only two things that we can truly control in our lives - our own perception and our own behavior. That's it. Nothing more than that. Each week, The Laverne Cox Show will feature intimate conversations with folks who help me to see and think differently so that maybe I can act differently. It is my hope that this becomes a place that fosters perspectives that might inspire new behavior in each of us, which in turn gets us closer to becoming the very best versions of ourselves. Let's have a spiritual makeover together.

Laverne Cox’s podcast has quickly become one of my absolute favorites! Her understanding of incredibly challenging subjects beyond trans-rights is breathtaking. She has comprehensive knowledge on social justice, intersectionality, caste, privilege, club culture, music, and so much more. Laverne approaches every topic and conversation with grace, empathy, compassion, and kindness. I love this show. Thank you Laverne for giving the world this gift!
Love this podcast!
I love hearing about Laverne’s experiences and interviews with interesting people. She is inspiring to me on so many levels. I appreciate how seriously she takes this podcast and her vulnerability.
I so enjoy listening to your pod cast. I am being taught about a world that is vibrant and loving and real yet not easily found, especially if one is not a card carrying member. I am a 60s child who wanted to go help Black people register to vote but was still in HS, no talk of such activity being planned in my hometown. I have worked with many Black people yet never developed a friendship. This pod cast gives me a glimpse into your lived reality and how it is different from mine and most white people. The 2 pod casts that really showed some differences were the ones about Privilege and the one about the criminal system. I knew much about these 2 topics, I thought. You gave in clarity and depth. And you did it without rancor or blaming all whites. Without hate, without anger. Yet you gave it the solemnity it deserves.
And I throughly enjoy listening to you Laverne and your amazing laugh. Thank you from an old white woman who marched for your rights, gay rights, ERA, supporting those with AIDS. All the activism’s in the 70s. I still am learning and praying our world and country stay livable for freedom loving peoples.
