*TW: This episode contains discussions of suicide; please listen with caution.*
This week on the podcast, Jay welcomes Iden Crockett. Iden is a true Renaissance woman: artist, writer, photographer, musician, and so much more, but this has been her second lease on life. Iden was a paramedic and firefighter for 25 years before being forced out of her job after she came out as trans. Her art has since been a vehicle for discussing her experience with PTSD, gender dysphoria, self-injury, and eating disorders. In the episode, Jay and Iden discuss Iden's journey and work but also address how we can live authentically in a society that may not accept us for who we are.
