Transition Transmission Transgender Podcast

In this weeks episode of Transition Transmission, a by and for transgender podcast, we answer a lot of listerner mail and messages that we've received over the last month.  We talk about how much we love and respect GenCon for standing up for everyone in Indiana.  We gripe about how easily transphobia comes to comedians like Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, especially when they both went out of their way to make fun of Bruce Jenner.  We talk about the Obama administrations stance on same sex marriage, and how it has gotten harder for someone to be removed from military service for being trans.  All of this and more as we discuss what's new in the world, and, of course, we get sidetracked by all the other things that are going on in the world.
