I got the chance to produce an episode of BBC Radio 4’s programme Don’t Log Off. It’s a show where presenter Alan Dein speaks to strangers from all over the world, and asks them about their lives and what they get up to.
My episode is called The Road Less Travelled, and it’s loosely themed around identity and people finding a path to be who they are today. I was very grateful to all the contributors who spoke to Alan, and were so generous with their time and their stories.
In this week’s episode, Alan connects with people in Sweden, Brazil, Australia, Poland, and beyond. Conversations include a trans man in the military getting ready for fatherhood, a burlesque performer building queer community in Brazil, and a woman who wonders how different her life might have been if she never found roller derby.
