I am a “straight sized” white CIS female and I am SO grateful to have found this podcast. It is helping to rewire the head of bad wiring I’d been issued by this society. I started with the first episode and am working my way forward. I am dreading the day that I get all caught-up and will have to be patient for new episodes. Keep up the great work!
