TPT#16 - One Month on "T"

At just over a month on testosterone, George has just had his third injection. We discuss the ups and downs of the injection cycle, and how that experience has affected George so far, and how Jess is dealing with poking him in the rear on a fortnightly basis.

TPT#15 - Here Be Swears.

Holy smallfolk, Batman! Kids make Jess swear. And to be fair, there's a lot to swear about. Extra-special needs, autism, developmental delays, occupational therapy, public school nonsense, and trying to juggle careers and transition in the meanwhile, make us very busy and occasionally frustrated.

Hosting Site Errors

So our hosting site just “upgraded” their system… losing some functionality *and* a couple of episodes from the iTunes listing. If you don't see the episode you want in iTunes, you can still view it here, or in most podcatchers. We've contacted the hosting site TechSup and should have the problem corrected shortly.

In other news, we're finally getting around to using the tumblr, twitter, and other social media accounts we reserved back in the spring, and you can now access this site by way of!

They fixed it. Props to PodBean for prompt service!

TPT#14 - Coming Out!

We had to cut a significant amount of content from this episode, from personally identifying information to lots of throat-clearing as George's vocal cords start to thicken as a result of testosterone. And speaking of testosterone, now that the medical part of George's transition has gotten underway it's time to start informing friends and family. You never know how people will take the news that their child, friend, or sibling will be changing gender, but George's experiences so far, with the few people he's had "the talk" with, have been fairly positive.

TPT#13 - At Last!

We run almost a full half-hour today, as George finally had his appointment at the itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka-dot gender clinic, and he finally gets testosterone. Recorded just shy of a week on T, we discuss our initial impressions of his new experience.

TPT#12 - Be Realistic!

A trip to IKEA, and a bathroom snafu on the way home, made us think about how important it is to be realistic. George finds it important and helpful to see the world and his own place in it from a range of viewpoints, both to effectively present himself as he is at this early stage of transition (still pre-everything), and to map out a plan or timeline for effectively managing the process of transition when he, like many trans* folk, want it now!
