Finally started eating up this podcast, and I’m in love!

Love the variety of topics viewed from a trans perspective. Hoping for more to come.

A valuable resource

Jackson is a compassionate and skilled interviewer who is amplifying the voices of transgender people from many different backgrounds. This podcast is a window into their experiences and a valuable resource for anyone who has an interest in what life is like for transgender and gender nonconforming people.

Amazing interviews!

I have been watching Jackson’s YouTube videos for a while now and when I found out that he had a podcast, I was so excited! All of the episodes have been amazing so far. I’m so glad it’s back with the second season, kicking off with a killer episode with Alex Myers. I have been searching the web for queer and especially trans fiction stories and I am so excited to read this book. Thanks again, Jackson, for all the work you do!
