You may be wondering why most of my back catalog is only available on Stitcher Premium. Last year, the network I used to be on folded, and I was fortunate to be picked up the network Midroll, which will provide ads for my show. Midroll also owns the app Stitcher, and part of my deal with them is that any episode older than 6 months will be available exclusively on Stitcher Premium -- and every episode on Stitcher Premium will be ad-free. This gives me the financial ability to continue to create and produce the show because once I switched to Midroll, the previous ads from my old network either didn't generate profits anymore or disappeared from the episodes. And people discovering my back catalog has been an important part of my income.
10 extra episodes from my back catalog will also be available on all platforms, and you can get the rest on Stitcher Premium for just $5 a month, and you can pay month-to-month. If you sign up at https://www.stitcher.com/premium and use the promo code “Imaginary,” the first 30 days is a free trial. Plus, the revenue I get from those subscriptions will help make this podcast financially sustainable.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
In some video games, you can choose which character you want to play, and you can customize the look of those characters. For many transgender players, that option played a significant role in their lives. Reporter and podcaster Jaye McAuliffe co-hosts this episode, as she reflects on her own gender transition and the experience of others who discovered that they can use video game avatars to begin reimagining themselves in the real world. Also featuring Julie Tjalas, Brynmore Ruiz, Anne Bazarnic and Bonnie Ruberg.
