It's our last ride alongside Vox Media. Thanks for all the fish.
After this week. The Trans Sporter Room is taking a 4-week hiatus to transition into some new digs, but we'll end the "Vox Era" with a standout trio that gets all "A"s. This week our host, Karleigh Webb, sits down with
Advocacy -- Ash Hall -- Ash is one of a young gritty generation who are taking the torch of late Texas trans titan Monica Roberts. They beam up to talk about to ugly fight there, but also about how they keep hope amid the Greg Abbott onslaught.
Advance -- D.F. Pendry -- Like our host, D.F. is a sports journalist, and they also like out D.F. sports was a way through and way forward, and the Glaive Sports correspondent gives us the ins and out of Premier Hockey Federation playoff chase, and a look into the recent NHL retrenchment regarding pride nights in the league.
