There are so many detransitioners who are regretting their transition. And they also mention how easy it was for them to get on puberty blockers/hormones. Hormone therapy is still experimental and the long term effects are not known. I'm so disappointed in Science Vs

Sorry, this might be just my issue, I’d love to listen to these pod casts as the topics and structure are really good, but the hosts voice prevents me from doing so, the top end nasally tone hurts my brain, please get a more headphone friendly host. Or is it just me?

It makes sense that the placebo effect can change the way the brain perceives pain. I know if I’m super angry I have a much higher tolerance to pain but if I’m annoyed or agitated I feel pain more easily.

Usually a fan of Science Vs., but this episode just came across skewed with no discussion of negative side of these issues and possible negative psychological issues involved. Seemed to me to be very one sided/biased, vs a pro/con discussion. And I side with being positive about trans rights in most cases.

apologies but Wendy Zuckerman's 'vocal fry' is horrible to listen to, may I suggest that if you're going to be podcasting that's you get some vocal coaching, I just couldn't keep following this podcast because of it and it's such a good show
