Episode 41 - rocky roads lead to happiness

In this episode, we gorge on Tess Woods' home made rocky road. Thanks Tess! We also talk about the limitations of men's clothing (Jason is exclusively dressed by Blazer - he wants to be on their design team), we find out the definition of a laundry list, the pair muse over what type of museum they would have, talk books and podcasts, and lament the hotels and planes that don't have free wifi.

You can't be sure where the conversation will go but there will always be refreshments provided.

Episode 40 - Donate Life #ThankYouDay

This is a special episode with our dear friend Camille Condon to discuss Donate Life #ThankYouDay. Donate Life Thank You Day is a day especially to thank donors, their families and medical professionals who make organ donation possible. One organ donor can change the lives of up to 10 people.

Camille is a double lung transplant recipient and does a lot in the community to support other transplant patients and their families. She is Vice President of the Heart and Lung Transplant Trust of Victoria (HLTTV) - a trust that supports transplant patients and their families - removing the financial stress just a little. She has created a calendar featuring her dog Wally and other dogs of transplant recipients to raise funds for the HLTTV - buy it here.

Camille (and everyone that knows her) is so thankful to her donor and their family for giving her the gift of life.

From the Donate Life website:

"Sunday 19 November 2017 is DonateLife Thank You Day – a national day dedicated to honouring all organ and tissue donors and their families.
Help us promote awareness of the day in your workplace, your school and your community. The Thank You Day Supporter Kit has a range of ideas and resources to get you started – including posters to download and display, online banners and social media content. Download your Supporter Kit today 

Each year, living and deceased donors and their families save and transform the lives of thousands of Australians through the gift of organ and tissue donation.
Thank You Day is a time for the community to come together and say ‘thank you’ to all donors and their families, whose stories inspire us to register at donatelife.gov.au and discuss our donation decisions. 
It’s also an opportunity to acknowledge our donation and transplantation specialists, joined by many other health professionals, who care for our donors, recipients and their families."
Please consider becoming an organ and tissue donor, and register your decision on the Donate Life website. Don't forget to tell your loved ones of your wishes to be a donor. 

Bacon Jam!!

In this episode Carly and Jason go on big tangents. 

From dramatic pauses, cupcakes from the cupboard and Sydney food, to first mobile phones and a visible panty network, this episode has everything you need to make you LOL. 

Jason also has an epic marriage equality soapbox moment which is a must listen. And Carly just wants feta with her breakfast. The big issues people, the big issues. 

We are eating cake and talking shit like we always do.

Message from a listener :
"Hi Carly and Jason,

Noticed your request for soundbites about marriage equality. My partner and I are not out so I can't send you my voice, but if you're interested feel free to check out my statement below.

Love your advocacy work. thanks so much for being who you are and doing what you do. I've learnt heaps from you.

What marriage equality means to me:

Until not long ago I saw myself as a straight ally to the LGBTIQA community. While I never felt strictly straight, I enjoyed plenty of hetero-privilege on account of being a woman married to man. We have two kids, life in the 'burbs, the works.

Then my spouse realised they are in fact a trans woman.

When one person in an established, long term relationship realizes they're trans, it can obviously be a game changer for the relationship. Luckily for me, my partner is an amazing, beautiful person who loves me with all their heart; they are the least selfish person I know, who has shown me an unconditional love I didn't even know existed. Luckily for them, I'm a left-y feminist with very little attachment to prescribed gender roles. After the initial shock of their coming out (and it was a huge shock) had worn off, I realised that the things I cherish most about my spouse and our relationship have no relation whatsoever to them being masculine. We're together, and intend on staying that way.

Yet I remain wracked with anxiety. To the point where I'm struggling to parent, to work, and to generally get out of bed in the morning. The reason I feel like this is because we live in a homophobic and transphobic society. I can honestly say, that if society was cool with queer couples and trans people, then my spouse's transition would pose very little issue for me.

My husband becoming my wife is not an issue - in fact, I'm looking forward to a happier, healthier spouse - the problem is bigotry. The marriage equality "debate" is bringing that bigotry to my newsfeed every day. The things they're saying about our children are the most difficult to hear. The knowledge that our children will one day hear those things about their family has me in tears just writing this.

If marriage equality doesn't pass, and my spouse changes their gender on their birth certificate to reflect the reality that they're a woman, then we will have to get divorced. That's right Tony, by not legalizing SSM you're FORCING the biological parents of existing children to GET DIVORCED.

I realise our situation is in the minority within the LGBTIQA community. I realise we already have a huge amount of privilege on account of being white and middle class. At the same time, trans issues are not really being heard in the debate, and I wanted to make sure a few got heard."


"I think that it should've been solved by a free vote in parliament but since that can't happen because of stupid politics, I think everyone should just vote yes. For many many reasons – whether you're progressive or conservative. For me the issue is personal – I have friends and family who would love to get legally married but can't because of the current situation. It sucks. I think it's stupid that an opposite sex relationship (e.g. Self and boyfriend) is recognised more than a same-sex one (if my partner was a woman). 😡
