Episode 95 – They/Them (Ft. Saffron)

Happy Pride Month!

In honor of Pride Month I spoke to one of my dearest friends: Saffron! They are a non-binary individual who I’ve known for 13 years!

They were very kind to share their personal journey navigating gender norms and how they were christened Saffron on their “golden birthday”.

In addition they also took the time to help provide education tools for parents who may have a hard time trying to navigate non-binary language with their children.

It’s a really great episode, I think you’re really going to enjoy it!

Episode 90 – Never Before Heard

Happy Easter!

In this special edition of the podcast Joe has pulled clips that have, for whatever reason, never been heard before on the show!

All of these segments are from earlier in the podcast when Joe, John and Galan were all still hosting the show.

First, the guys talk to Charlie Herschel (who was on the show to discuss his parenting journey through surrogacy) about his experience playing Survivor over 10 years ago!

Second, the guys talk to photographer Alex J. Martin about his relationship with his dad. (Alex took the photos that were seen in the Dallas Observer back in June 2018)

Lastly, Joe and Galan share their personal stories dealing with Chicken Pox and how now that there is a vaccine it’s interesting how their children will not have a similar experience to them.

No “Ask the Birth Guy” this week but it will return next week.

Enjoy!
