152 - Make a Man Out of Me

152 - Make a Man Out of Me

In this episode, Savannah and Julie discuss a letter from a pod listener named Charlotte who asks if the intrepid co-hosts had ever discussed the practice of a male-to-female crossdresser hiding one's femininity under the guise of overt and exaggerated masculinity. From going out for high school football to several tours in the US Navy, the efforts to conform is always heavy lifting and hard work when one just wants to fit in with everyone else.

151 - A Magician Revealing Their Secrets

151 - A Magician Revealing Their Secrets

In this episode, both Savannah is excited to share in a celebration with her co-host Julie. A close friend of the podcast, codenamed 'Jellyfish' (if you know, you know), had begun to share their feminine persona with a couple close lifelong friends and close neighbors. Each has been met with love, support, acceptance and shares of their own. Each reveal is a testament to the kind side of human nature. With the posting of these successes, Savannah and Julie take a journey to discuss what seven important factors should be considered when wrestling with whether to share one's authenticity with others outside the closest and most intimate circle. From the status of one's relationship with the possible secret recipient to levels of confidentiality, from maturity to security, from safety, the recipient's strength of character, to why one should even share their secret in the first place, Savannah and Julie give their thoughts on the matter.

146 - Summer Lovin'

In this episode, Savannah and Julie talk about how hot they both are. No... no... they aren't talking about their amazing physical appearance but rather the difficult times some crossdressing men may encounter when the full glare of summer is upon them. Some may feel self-conscious showing more skin, while others may come close to heat stroke with their wigs and compression and padding on. Still others love other seasons so much more than summer, basking in the ability of the pastels of spring, the earth tones and knee boots of autumn, and the jackets and scarfs of winter. Savannah and Julie pick their favorite seasons, give a couple tips on how to beat the summer heat, and invite everyone to just go on spreading summer lovin'!

145 - Reviewing the Source Material

In this episode, Savannah is so excited to tell Julie abut her interaction on an Instagram post where a troll tells Savannah she needs to repent, Read the Gospels, and be saved from sin. From that interaction, Savannah decides to think back to episode '5 - Debunking Deuteronomy 22:5' and see what else people who spout one of the 613 Mitzvot should be also adhering to to secure their own places at the right hand of the heavenly Father. Julie and Savannah take a silly and whimsical turn at reviewing other archaic laws, just to prove that a couple dozen sentences about crossdressing in the Bible does not make the act an abomination.

In this episode, Julie asks Savannah to discuss the hot raging news coming from the lush green White House lawns during a PRIDE celebration. Front and at the center of it all... in several ways... was the one and only Rose Montoya. As a mentor and influencer to Julie, Rose Montoya and her breasts were weaponized against her and the Transgender community by conservative media outlets that felt her "rockets' red glare" were both inappropriate at a White House event and a telling reminder and proof that people under the transgender umbrella are indeed vile and perverted. Rosa apologized for her actions and Julie and Savannah break it all down for ya... plus, give their own two cents!

In this episode, Julie asks Savannah how her experience was going to therapy for the first time... as Savannah. Sure, Chuck has been going to therapy for a while now, but this marked the first time the therapist asked Savannah to make an actual "wig to heel" appearance "on the couch". They touch on the actual session experience, the nervousness Savannah felt about showing up for the first time, her concern for receiving validation and acceptance as a serious male-to-female gender diverse individual, and the feelings of being seen and heard in her feminine persona. Julie and Savannah round out the episode for what makes, in their opinion, a good mental heath professional dynamic with the feelings of safety and the ability to be vulnerable being paramount.

140 -The Standards of Beauty

140 -The Standards of Beauty

In this episode, Savannah joins Julie to read an excerpt from a NEW YORK TIMES article "Always Well Groomed" by Rhona Garelick, an entry that raises questions about what drives the ideals of socially acceptable beauty. From industry determinants to cultural, but fleeting, 'It' standards, from publications and advertisements pushing an agenda of beauty that is not only nearly unattainable but airbrushed and PhotoShop-ed to a degree that no human could very achieve by natural means. And, when it comes to the male-to-female experience, how much harder does society make it and how hard do we make it for ourselves to chase and achieve this beauty standard.

139 - If The Shoe Fits

In this episode, Julie lightens the heavy mood from the last couple of weeks to talk about something that affects every woman and male-to-female crossdresser who doesn't live off the grid in a plush forest somewhere... shoes and heels. Julie reads a love letter sent in by a lover of heels, creating a conversation with Savannah about the power of feminine footwear, how best to fill your shoe tree, tips for how to walk in even the most towering stilettos, and the fact that the height of a woman's heel may indeed be reflected in her comfort and confidence in her overall femininity.

137 - Little Boy Blue and the Man in the Moon

In this episode, Savannah finds out minutes before recording the podcast episode that their father is terminally ill in the hospital without any chance to recover. What bubbles up to the surface is a frank conversation with Julie about Savannah's childhood as the little boy his parents' assumed them to be, how Savannah dealt with their upbringing, the things they felt they missed out on, their ongoing twenty-something anger against their father, and the thirty-something forgiveness finally released from Savannah's heart for the man who has just done the best he knew how to do. Savannah now will never have a chance to tell their father about all that his child has accomplished... but maybe that is good enough.

134 - A Significant Problem For Others

In this episode, Julie and Savannah reconnect after a couple weeks away from podcasting. Julie talks about her new laptop and Savannah regales Julie with her trip to the 13th Annual Keystone Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Other than the conference and workshops as a whole, Savannah comes back with tales from the Significant Ones--the partners of their male-to-female crossdressing mates--more fully understanding the plights of our cis-female partners and their struggles of finding relevant and positive support from other female counterparts who are going through the same trials and tribulations with a man who finds peace with dressing and presenting as a woman. The resources already exist out there in the digital space, but often requires outing themselves in the process and finding just as much negative talk as they were fearful to hear. What can be done to provide a safe environment for crossdressing SOs so they feel heard and safe and educated?

133 - Paying for the Bills

In this episode, Julie brings to the mic and to Savannah her frustration about the hundreds of anti-Trans, anti-Drag, and anti-LGBTQIA+ bills currently under review or in committee in almost every legislative state house in the United States. From a handful of bill written up and introduced in 2018 to almost four hundred active bills introduced since then, the attacks on the queer community continues to rage on. Fueled by hate, anger, fear, religious morales, and a distracting attempt by those in power to make it seem like they are being productive and working on behalf of their constituents, each bill needs to be attacked at every level before they chip away at our rights for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

132 - Secrets, Secrets Everywhere

In this episode, Savannah is inspired by a comment referring to her first TEDx talk where she mentioned she had not told her parents about being gender diverse...nor had any intention of sharing her feminine identity with them. Savannah and Julie discuss the pros and cons of keeping a secret this important and encompassing, when, why and with whom to share with, and how sharing secrets can be vulnerable, scary, dangerous and lifesaving.  Each person is different, therefore each person's secret  and their choices of confidante is wholly unique to their experiences.

From gratitude that Savannah's partner,Judy, was able to voice her own side of their journey together, to agreeing with the distaste for the word 'transvestite', to feeling sadness after deconstructing from enfemme mode back to  biological male mode, each listener has a rich story to tell all their own. Savannah and Julie read the letters and comments on air before giving their love, appreciation, and commentary back to each entry. The listeners are what makes this journey worthwhile!

During a podcast appearance with Dr. Dan, Savannah was asked a question about how one would see themselves in their sexuality if they had transitioned from man to woman. Would they consider themselves a heterosexual woman after transition if they started dated men, or would they still be homosexual since they were born a biological male? What sparked first as a very interesting podcast guest scenario question became the genesis of this conversation with Savannah and Julie. From differentiating between biology and birth "sex" to the lack of imperative proof that biology is causation for gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientations, Savannah and Juie get deep into it!

127 - A Tender Age

127 - A Tender Age

In this episode, Julie reads a letter to Savannah from a 14-year-old individual whose parents found out about their crossdressing. As a result, this teenager is afraid to dress again. Savannah and Julie, both having strong feelings on the topic, spend the episode dissecting the short letter, Julie's response, and what it's like to be a teenager struggling with an inherent sense of their own gender diversity. What can parents do t support their children without overreacting...both in a too-positive and a too-negative way? Savannah also brings up a www.Parents.org article about how to support a queer youth going through the trials and tribulations of sexuality and gender diversity at such a tender age.

126 - Savannah Goes To Therapy

126 - Savannah Goes To Therapy

In this episode, Savannah reveals to Julie a mind-blowing revelation. During a counseling session, the therapist comments that much of Savannah's current proclivities, life coping skills, and non-confrontational demeanor may have stemmed from a childhood chock full of continued attempts to keep herself safe from emotional harm and invalidation by her parents. Self-preservation is a critical and often-overlooked reason why we continue to exist as a species. Throw in gender diversity in a world that hasn't fully embraced our authenticity and the chance that our parents may withhold their unconditional love from us because we are not fitting into the right 'normal' boxes and you have a ripe recipe full of adulthood triggers and traumas. While those coping mechanisms were internally created to practically protect our younger selves way back then, those tools' relevancy and requirement in our adult lives continuing to shield and protect our inner princess child may have become outdated, dull, and may be hurting as much as it is helping.

124 - No Short Cuts to Your True Self

124 - No Short Cuts to Your True Self

In this episode, Savannah comes to the table with Julie with a story of detransition. Chris Beck, a United States Navy Seal, who gained public attention in 2013 after coming out as a trans woman (Kristin Beck), announced in 2022 that he would be detransitioning. Upon investigation, Savannah found an article and interview entitled, "Former Navy SEAL Trans Poster Boy Announces DeTransition: 'Transgender Ideology Is Cultish'" on the Christian Broadcast Network online media outlet. After reading the article and watching the first hour of the two-hour interview, Savannah and Julie needed to discuss the topic. While Chris' detransition is an unfortunate one, his claim that all gender-affirming care and 'the system' behind it is cultish becomes the basis of why it is so important to find the right resources, the right information, the right allies, and the most true version of one's self.  While there are some kernels of truth in the interview (needing to make sure children are not medically mangled, not relying on the first medical opinion one hears, etc.), the idea that his experience is a cumulative total sum of what all gender expansive care experiences are for every person's specific gender needs is a dangerous position to take.

123 - Don't Be Such a Drag!

In this episode, Julie talks with Savannah about her favorite culture... the drag culture. They discuss RuPaul's Drag Race and how drag in person and in entertainment has gone from the underground to the mainstream of pop culture. From NYC's Lucky Cheng's to 'We're Here", drag and the culture it represents has been int he zeitgeist for at least the last fifty years. And, as it becomes more a part of the social narrative more and more ultra conservative lawmakers have come forward to propose state-level bills banning government funding for Story Hours, set age requirements for drag shows, or ban venue drag performances outright. While some feel our national morality is at stake, the truth is drag performers and the human being under the glitter and foundation are just as valid as everyone else.

121 - We Will Return After These Commercial Messages

In this episode, Savannah is excited to have Julie watch a newly launched whiskey commercial which tells a lovely holiday season family tale of transgender identity. Added to that is a Mars Halloween Bite: New Nanny Twix commercial from a Halloween or two ago. And, finally, talk springs up about the release/banning/re-release of the Zola commercials on the Hallmark Channel a few years ago. From outrage of a lesbian kiss and wedding, to a boy in a dress in public, to any possible outcry about an elderly man trying on makeup in secret before the holidays, Savannah and Julie give each a look from both sides of the entertaining intermissions that put the LBGTQIA+ community front and center.

In this episode, Savannah reminds Julie of yet another accidental reveal between her and a work vendor while she was quarantined but working from home. In the aftermath of her revealing herself in full to this work partner, Savannah was graced with a response she never would have expected. In the letter back, the vendor spoke about her own daughter being "beyond the binary" and their perchance for preferred pronouns is "whatever". Julie and Savannah talk about the lovely letter itself, the fact we really never know how many people we meet in our lives who, in fact, are also part of the LGBTQIA+ community, and that if we put ourselves and our authenticity to the test we might find that the reception will be surprising and amazing.

117 - Under Outside Influences

117 - Under Outside Influences

In this episode, Savannah and Julie chat about the importance of crossdressng men having a solid validating support system. Sometimes, that takes the form of a loving and supportive partner. Sometimes, the intimate partner cannot or will not take on the role of a validating, guiding, and supportive "girlfriend'. Not the role of an intimate girlfriend or wife, but that of a "girlfriend" or "den mother"  who can help you with your fashion and style, be someone to lean on for bravery and confidence, and be one to emphatically chat up about all the adventures you've had. In real life, a crossdressing man's wife or girlfriend cannot fill that role for one of many of their own personal reasons. But, just as women have their own circle of friends they rely on and confide in, male-to-female crossdressers need the same things for themselves in order to enjoy healthy and confidence-building experiences.

116 - Remembering Pride

116 - Remembering Pride

In this episode, Savannah talked to Julie about what PRIDE means to her, reflecting on the local PRIDE event she missed this year due to COVID, binge-watching season 11 of the 1981 New York Gay Community themes of American Horror Story: NYC, and thinking about how far Savannah has come over the last several years. Like looking at Transformation Tuesday pics on social media, the end of the year is always a great opportunity to see your evolution in mind, body and spirit as it comes to your life, in general, and feminine authenticity.

115 - Undressing Me With Your Eyes

115 - Undressing Me With Your Eyes

In this episode, Julie asked the question on social media, "How do I feel when I change out of my femme persona?". From sadness to despair, from self-reflection to self-assessment, Savannah and Julie read some of a bevy of listener comments that address how crossdressing men feel and deal when their emotional and psychological states when its time to de-transform back into male mode. While some men have a general sense of melancholy when they put away their feminine identities after their femme time to shine, others fall into anguish because they don't know when they might next feel the satiny caress of their feminine wardrobe against their body. Finding balance to express each and every of your gender expressions is critical to healthy mental health for yourself and how you interact with others. The darkness of the proverbial closet is more than the lack of light ... it also can cast a shadow on the person you need to be.

114 - Poor Grooming Habits

114 - Poor Grooming Habits

In this episode, Savannah comes to the pod with a little fire and anger in her belly. Julie has to talk her off the proverbial ledge as they dissect the re-emerging tactic of the use of the word "grooming" as it gets applied to the queer community by conservative or political groups trying to cast aspersions on members of the LGBTQIA+ community through misinformation, suppression of information and resources and equality, and the fanning of the flames of fear mongering against people they already consider require purging. How did the definition of grooming go from being an issue of hygiene to being akin to accusations of pedophilia?  And, based on this negative definition of "grooming", Savannah and Julie raise up all sorts of other ways in which the conservative masses could be considered groomers when it comes to indoctrinating each other and their youth with conspiracy theories, misinformation, religious upbringing, and cultural exposure. And, as Savannah points out, she did not have access to the internet, LGBTQ+ studies in school, public pro-pride groups, or drag queen story hours in her youth. Yet, somehow, Savannah still managed to exist.

113 - Living Loud Online

113 - Living Loud Online

In this episode, Savannah and Julie discuss the pros and cons of a purely segregated trans queer life spent on social media versus living a life IRL. From the safety to the social media wall to its limits, from the validation of found community and sisters from around the globe to staying hidden from family just sitting in the next room, from the expansiveness of the internet to the perils of real life, what is the best course for you? Can an avatar existence trump emerging into real world? While some may be perfectly content to stay at the keyboard and pose for the camera, others may need to break away to follow their intended path for something more tangible.

112 - Reading Is Queer-damental

In this episode, Savannah and Julie get a bit angry at the organized and targeted attempts by lobbies and hate groups masquerading as morally just literary commandos with the singular purpose in mind to ban as many LGBTQIA+, minority-driven, activism-minded, and racially-diverse books from our nation's school curriculums and public library system's shelves. As an LGBTQIA+ author and a community ally, this pod duo try to raise awareness for a rowing literary and accessibility concern for our queer youth!

109 - Surviving the Holidays

In this episode, Savannah and Julie tackle a topic that has plagued generations of family members... the dreaded family-centric holidays. Those holidays where we have been taught and told are magical and all about family values and togetherness. The famous Norman Rockwell depiction of the joyous Thanksgiving dinner with smiling family members around the table isn't a reality for many of us, especially those with dysfunctional dynamics that must be burdened because we, as blood relatives, have an unwritten obligation to commune in these times and on these days. How can you survive hosting or guesting through the holidays? Savannah and Julie tackle a list of quick tips and tricks with anecdotes, experiences, and silliness. This can be a difficult time of year and hope this can make the season a little brighter and easier.

In this episode, Savannah and Julie respond to listener and personal DM comments about Significant Ones seeing their enfemme partners for the first time IRL. From cis-female wives' and girlfriends' trepidation and anxiety of the anticipation of seeing her male partners dressed as women in front of their eyes to the male partners' concern and fear of outright rejection, the first in-person interaction between crossdressing men and their female partner can be a scary event. What will happen? Will it go positively or negatively? Will the experience create a better relationship dynamic or a worse one? Will the crossdresser immediately retreat to their closet even if the female partner is accepting and loving? Savannah and Julie peel back the first couple layers of the first reveal onion to. hopefully give their CD and SO listeners something to think and talk about.
