Transition Radio Show (Aug 14, 2022)

Note: Many detransition interviews with TRS seem to have been taken down. I do not recommend appearing on this podcast. The hosts have a years-long history of repeatedly "switching sides" and becoming hostile towards the side they've just left, which is how they behaved towards the detransitioners who generously gave them our time and shared our personal stories with them. The interview itself, if it ever resurfaces, was fine for what it is.
