Unheard Of: Sex, Religion and Politics at the Dinner Table!

Welcome to the first Unheard Of! podcast!

Your host, Eman interviews ordinary people with unconventional lives over their favourite meal.

Eman talks taboo topics at the dinner table. An Atheist converts to Judaism, a transgender person, a former Jehovah's Witness, an asexual person to name a few. Giving unorthodox lives a platform in our heteronormative society.

On her first episode, Eman talks to Montreal comedienne Tranna Wintour. Tranna describes herself as “optimistic, spiritual, happy, raunchy, pop culture obsessed and fashion hungry".  Among her many accolades, she's been named one of Montreal's best comediennes for two years in a row.  Her recent show Trantasy played to packed houses at the Montreal Fringe Festival in 2015.

She also does a great interview. Enjoy!

 

 

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
