|30:12||Question of the Week“I am in Ireland, married with a growing interest in dressing in ladies clothes, especially lingerie & hosiery. My wife is aware but cannot understand or look at me wearing. She thinks it is weird & not common, although I think it is not that bad. From your experience how frequent is my position?”

|45:31||Recently in Spokane, Washington, a transgender woman was jailed for failure to pay child support. While this might not seem unjust at first, a closer look reveals that her child support amount was set by an apparently transphobic judge to an amount she could never hope to pay, especially when she lost her job after being outed at work. Kim Stankovich, a caring parent, tells her story, including the support she received from the feminist group “Stop the Clock”. – Visit the “Stop the Clock” website at http://www.stoptheclock.org/|
|69:10||Also speaking with us from Spokane is Kim’s good friend Chrissa, who has a few things to say about the local Spokane trans community. She identifies lack of support for young trans people as one of the leading problems her community faces, and also cautions against exploitation originating on web sites.|

|84:12||Once again we visit with the non-trans author of a book about a novel about a transgender person. This time, the novelist is Australian C.C. Saint-Clair, who is well known for her strong lesbian romance novels ‘for the thinking woman’. Recently, she has become fascinated with female-to-male transsexualism, and her latest work, titled Morgan in the Mirror, deals with just such a character. It has been well received in FTM circles, and we suspect there may be more to CC’s interest than meets the eye!|
