The "Our Queer Roots" Edition

Outward has a new monthly podcast! On the first episode, hosts Christina Cauterucci, Bryan Lowder, and New America’s Brandon Tensley—along with a smorgasbord of Slate staffers—reveal their queer roots. Does it all come down to crop tops? Then, in the debut Straight Studies segment, Slate features director Laura Bennett helps us decide if straight, cisgender people have roots, too. Then Alex Barasch joins the gang to talk about his Washington Post piece, “ Biology Is Not Destiny: Seeking a Scientific Explanation for Trans Identity Could Do More Harm Than Good."Podcast production by Daniel SchroederThis episode is brought to you by HelloFresh, a meal kit delivery service that shops, plans, and delivers step-by-step recipes and pre-measured ingredients.
