Episode Date
5: Jumping Into the Deep End
2781
This week, both Chloe and Jeff confront one of the trickiest parts of transitioning: how to feel most comfortable in their own skin, and how to change their bodies -- if at all. Chloe is on the eve of facial feminization surgery, but a family health crisis at home in New York has her questioning whether she can stay in LA long term -- and whether she will have to face her recovery alone. Jeff heads to a pool party with Sy and some friends, where the discomfort he faces being in a swimsuit prompts him to revisit the idea of top surgery.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

4: Dreaming of Kids and Costco Memberships
2899
This week's episode is all about the joys and heartbreak of parenting. Sy struggles to navigate life as a transgender parent and worries how some of their parenting decisions may affect their child. They also realize that in order to move forward, they need to have a tough conversation with their own father. Chloe has always wanted to have a family and thought that she had permanently closed the door on having biological children after she transitioned, but learns this may not be the case, causing her to face a difficult dilemma.

3: You Couldn't Pay Me to Go Back There
2813
This week, our cast tries to reconcile some old ghosts of the past with the future they are working hard to build. Mariana moved to the United States from Guatemala to seek asylum after dealing with hate crimes and anti-trans sentiment there, but a visit back home dredges up old wounds and fears that she attempts to overcome. And back in Los Angeles... Chloe played football through most of her life prior to transitioning and almost went on to coach at the collegiate level. She's looking for a way to reconnect with the sport but is struggling with the masculine image of football and how it might set back her quest to be fully accepted as a woman.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

2: We Love Awkward
2848
Chloe is a trans woman who recently transitioned and is very inexperienced with dating, so much so that she's not even sure about her sexuality but is hoping to change all of that in LA. Jeff has spent years working as a stand-up comic on the road doing various college circuit gigs and is ready to walk away from the intense grind his work demands of him, however this career move is an emotional hurdle that Jeff can't easily overcome.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

3076
This week, we meet Sy, a nonbinary transgender legal assistant in Los Angeles. They transitioned after marrying their husband, Robert, and having a baby. While things seem great on the surface, Sy confesses they've been putting off having a tough conversation with Robert about their transition and how it might affect their romantic relationship. And speaking of putting things off ... this week, we also meet Jeff, a trans man and comedian who has been procrastinating about taking his hormone shots. He's been avoiding talking to a doctor about it, but he soon learns he may have put his body at great risk. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
