Kathy and Tobin, winners of WNYC Studios’ first podcast accelerator to discover new talent, explore how we define ourselves and the journey we take to get there, featuring fresh voices in the LGBTQ community. Episodes have covered topics like gay Republicans trying to influence Trump's agenda, sex ed, and coming out.
