TPT#20 - More Comings Out...

... or is that coming outs? George expressed his identity to a family friend who happens to be his boss. As his boss, she was able to begin checking into the employer's needs, but we were more interested that family friends be aware of the situation, as we were planning on telling the kids. We want them to be able to talk through and process this as needed over the summer, and grandpas and aunties should probably hear it from us first! The kids, however, seemed more interested in ice cream than in their "new" dad.

Books for Episode #20

Jess confused two books for the employer, there is no "Transsexuals In The Workplace". Sorry!
Transsexual Workers: An Employers' Guide
The Complete Guide to Transgender in the Workplace

For the kids:
My Princess Boy
Backwards Day
10000 Dresses
Be Who You Are

Also available (but we haven't read and therefore can't officially "endorse"):
My New Daddy
My New Mommy

TPT#19 - Wedding Weekend!

George & Jess went to Seattle, home of the Space Needle, GenderCast, the Seahawks, lots of rain, and our good friends who just got married! The trip was George's first time going "full time", and it was, overall, a positive experience. From the Trans*101 talk we stumbled into, to the gorgeous wedding, to the drag king show, a fun time was had by all.

TPT#18 - Everything But The Kitchen Sink.

Our conversation today was a bit rambly, as is our life often. First we indulge in a little ratings-whoring, so please rate us on iTunes, follow our twitter, tumblr, facebook, google+ (all listed in-site as "TransPanTastic"), and leave comments on our site! We then proceed to discuss positive things about our kids (they're not always rant-making), our upcoming trip to Seattle for a friend's wedding, and healthcare/self-care for HRT and surgery plans.

Social Media?

On summer break, Jess is finally getting around to utilizing the accounts she parked for us some months back. If you'd like to see what else we're up to during the week between podcasts, you can follow us, friend us, circle us, or all of the above!





Any other networks you want to see us in? Drop a note in the comments!

TPT#17 - Six Weeks on "T"

"You mistake my choice not to feel as a reflection of my not caring, while I assure you the truth is precisely the opposite." Spock's words in the most recent Star Trek movie fit a metaphor we've used for a few years, when hitting the off-switch on one's feelings to logically assess and address a situation. So at the risk of starting to sound like a YouTube channel, we continue the testosterone updates, but through the magic of the interweb, one week after our "one month" episode, we reach "six weeks" of HRT. This week we learn that George is not only becoming a pansy, but a pointy-eared logical vulcan, and a caveman as well, complete with body hair and toilet humor.
