What a fantastic episode. All three stories were fantastic.

I love how it’s all the MD’s who “failed” her (Joni O’Halloran), how exactly they did I’m positive is debatable, but it’s Joni who is the hero who even THINKS it’s a good idea to ingest controlled substances into her anal cavity. Delusions of grandeur…

I resonate with Jesse’s story so much! As a FTM Leo who turns 35 this Saturday. I had top surgery in April & started testosterone in June; I can relate! It’s definitely a journey. Thanks for advocating & sharing your story, good luck!!

My date and I were bummed one of the storytellers didn’t make it into the episode. She was “on a mission,” her story was more humorous than heavy, and it ended with the subject of her story contacting her years later through her YouTube channel. Anyone recall her name? Bonus episode anyone???

That’s great to hear — not just for us listeners, but the storytellers as well. Big supporter of the show here. Pre-ordered book and bought another copy at the show. Mom doesn’t do podcasts, but read my copy in ONE day! Thanks for making our lives better by bringing us these stories in both spoken and written form.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
