I had been looking forward to this conversation for a very long time. Dustin Harmsen welcomed me into his home and returned to the show, primarily to talk about two things. Being gender queer, not drinking alcohol (and how both of those things affect how we socialize). We cover the graphic novel memoir, "Gender Queer" by Maia Kobabe at length. I will continue to be a champion of that work in as many ways as I can think up; it meant that much to me. Dustin and I also dissect how I talk about my newfound pronouns - or don't - and why. He unveils why he has never purposefully had a sip of alcohol ever and how people tend to react upon hearing that. We definitely have pronoun slip ups but that's kind of the point. Actively working to be better. Not just trying. Music, parenting, fear, politics, and so much more.
