Welcome to the Fifty Shades of Gender Podcast!

Or rather, the PODCAST PREVIEW 🙂

This is where the podcast will live. But, before we commit to podcast hosting and go all pro (with intro music and all that jazz), here are our first interviews for you to listen to.

We will give each episode its own page, which will include video (with static image), audio player (if possible) and a transcript, as well as a bio of the person interviewed and a summary of what we talked about.

We want to make this better and better, so we’d love to hear your feedback! Email us at info@fiftyshadesofgender.com or find us on our Facebook page.

“The confidence I was having and being surrounded by lovely, open-minded affirming people who just let you be who you were was the most powerful feeling I’ve felt in a very long time.”
