Episode 184 - Jamie

Updated: May 25

Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our full disclosure for more info.

Jamie’s story is beyond powerful. They are incredibly vulnerable with us about the adversity they have overcome and continue to work through around transitioning, being autistic, surviving a stroke, poverty, and being in a relationship they don’t really have words to describe. While powerful and moving, Jamie also brings levity and humor to their story which is amazing. This isn’t one to skip… We hope you enjoy it.


Also, don't forget to leave us a review and feedback... It's how we make the show better!

From Jamie:

"As a kid who survived tough times, I was raised by books. Books continue to raise me every day. Here are a few Indigenous-authored books/media, who showed me how to think and love and live as a human in a world of relations. I think if you're someone who wants to listen, this is somewhere to start."
