If You're reading the comments and trying to decide if this podcast is worth your time, do yourself a solid and listen to the first 3 episodes. excellent journalism at it's finest with comedy and tragedy mixed in.

Ryan Gilligan comments aside it is a fantastic show... tho in the 3rd episode they state quite emphatically, that what they offer isn't journalism.. but anecdotal stories you wouldn't otherwise hear, aka "ear hustle".

lady Jay is a man who likes to dress and act like what is sterotypical female behavior as seen by men. That is why trans women act so drastically Unwoman like. It's extremely humiliating to think this man because he acts as he like all sexual priveledge men see women or want women to be. Get real Lady Jay hasn't been threw the fight real women have. They make real women look bad. women do not walk around wanting men to talk about their ass, boobs, ect. real women avoid this. real women actually call it sexual harassment and street harassment and we do not feel good when it happens. we feel fearful most of the time due to our reality of this patriarchal society who sees women as their property. Give me a break. trans people deserve human rights like everyone but please DO NOT CALL HIM A WOMEN. Are we not smart enough to call it what it is. whatever they want to be called I'm down with just NOT WOMEN.
