In this episode I get to talk to Zoe Tuck in a coffee shop in Oakland. We discuss speculative fiction, the second wave feminism she navigated during her coming of age years, spirituality, trans identities and collective memory, and more.

In this episode I have the pleasure of interviewing the current editors of Vetch: A Magazine of Trans Poetry and Poetics: Kay Gabriel, Stephen Ira, Liam O'Brien and Rylee Lyman. We talk about their approaches to putting the journal together, their insights into transgender poetics, and touch on the archival of transgender/gender-variant art. 

There's a huge reading/viewing list for this episode. Explore all the trans art!

The Sound of Waves Breaking for this episode is a clip from Season 4 of DBZ "Goku's Special Technique."
