A personal and informative listen. Captivated by the bravery, honesty and professional nature of this podcast
Such an inspiring topic and wonderfully honest and authentic guests from such a wide variety - I laughed and cried with them. The interview was chatty, easy and comfortable to listen to. Wonderful!
It is very clear that this is a podcast made by an experienced communicator - and the choice and handling of all the interviewees is superb.
Also there's little surprise that a podcast made by a playwright confidently uses pace and pausing to great effect.
A wonderful listen, breaking down the barriers of fear, and one would hope stigmatising. Sharing ever so powerful moments. The posters can say, 'some people are gay, get over it' , but what is often ignored is the fear of coming out, for some ot seems easy, yet others there is complication that goes beyond stigma. Opening up, putting yourself out there and telling lived one's, the tangible fear of losing them, as demonstrated in this podcast... And this podcast definitely helps people on the journey of coming out. Well done all involved.
Fascinating podcast production is much ground breaking. The honest and frankness of the participants is stunning. Good luck with Series Two.
A brilliant podcast; it has that intimacy and authenticity that we want from listening in a quiet space to a podcast. Powerful testimonies and humbling experiences. As with all great radio the preparation for this must have been enormous, you hear it in the strength of the interviews.
