00:00 Introduction
08:42 Question of the week:
Question: " What do the letters FTM stand for? " (from: Conor O'Donnell, Ireland)
Question: " I am 51 years old and have lived with my gender conflict for my whole life. I don't know if I could ever unload this information on my family & friends, I think it would be catastrophic. I get occasional relief from cross dressing in the privacy of my apartment. I basically cross-live at home, as soon as I get home from work I change into women's clothing and I sleep in women's nightgowns. My question is that it seems as though the older I get, the more I am aware of my dysphoria...is this common? I obsess about having breasts and getting a vagina. I've spent inordinate amounts of time checking out SRS surgeries on the internet. " (from: John)

31:31 J.B. Bryan is a poet, painter, graphic designer, small press publisher of La Alameda Press, who lives a funky but lovely existence with partner and daughter in the North Valley of Albuquerque, New Mexico. As a an artist, J.B. often quotes Henri Matisse: "Perhaps it is sublimated voluptuousness, and that may not be visible to everyone." J.B.'s chapbooks include "How Can I Follow My Beautiful Dreams?"; "Two Arms Held High"; "Lush in the Eddies"; "Culture Gone to Hell, Only Mountains and Rivers Remain"; and "Luscious Chlorophyll Wavy Lulu". Much of J.B.'s work is motivated by Buddhist practice. This has led to an experience which might be called 'Zender'.
