THINGS YOU ONLY TELL YOUR GIRLFRIENDS: Episode 4 - Robin
On this episode of THINGS YOU ONLY TELL YOUR GIRLFRIENDS, we are so grateful to have a chat with our friend, Robin, who offers us a glimpse of her life's journey as the mom of a trans kid. She talks about her perspective of how her journey has been thus far, obstacles along the way and what she would like to see in regards ally ship, the direction of representation in books/films/media and what she wishes people who have decided to fight against the rights of trans kids would ultimately know. In this month of pride, we encourage everyone to be a bit more compassionate and understanding and to really try and imagine walking in someone else's shoes to comprehend their struggle. We ultimately all want to be happy and we should all do everything we can to protect trans kids. Unfortunately there are people who will always reject them and given all the anti-trans bills being pushed forward, donating to an organization like https://transgenderlawcenter.org/ or the https://www.transjusticefundingproject.org/might be a great way to join in the fight. Some great additional reading can be found here and please check out some additional resources here: https://www.thetrevorproject.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/Guide-to-Being-an-Ally-to-Transgender-and-Nonbinary-Youth.pdf https://transequality.org/issues/resources/supporting-the-transgender-people-in-your-life-a-guide-to-being-a-good-ally

THINGS YOU ONLY TELL YOUR GIRLFRIENDS: Episode 3 - AMA [ASK ME ANYTHING]
For this episode of THINGS YOU ONLY TELL YOUR GIRLFRIENDS, I decided to do an AMA. I noticed that the girls wanted to be involved in this pod so I told them they could come up with their own questions and ask me anything. I will admit I was a little uneasy because this could have gone anyway. Its not in the least bit raunchy and we had a great time goofing around. My love to these little ladies that I love more than anything and my sound guy, who's also a really great spouse. We hope you enjoy this and encourage all parents to have a recorded conversation with your wee ones - it's definitely something they can keep and listen in the coming years.

In our second chat, we speak with Val, a career administrative professional with an extensive work history, on the state of the industry and where we will be in her opinion (which I agree) in a few years. She talks candidly of her own personal experiences and how they've helped shape her into the individual she's become. She also imparts some life lessons she's picked up along the way.
