Dear listeners, an episode. Recorded amid flatpacking and edited lightly, but lots to say. I will add to the shownotes later, for now you’ll forgive content list and links.

Listen to the podcast
P.S There are swears this episode.
Black Lives, Trans Lives and Black Trans Lives MATTER.
If you are sitting at home thinking what can I do – crack a book, make a donation, unpick your own privilege and bias and learn. Libraries are re-opening – use them. You don’t need to donate hundreds, look about you and see what’s happening in your area and donate £1, £2 whatever you can
