True Thirty, with Joey Dumont is a podcast that discusses and debates our society's most politically compelling topics through the lens of slow journalism. Each show is investigated with a focus on narrative as well as discovery. We believe that the complexity of culture cannot be crammed into six-minute television segments, or snippets and memes on social media, where ideology and entertainment is now the priority. On the program, you’ll hear the opinions of subject matter experts who'll explore the tangled topics of our day. Our collective goal is to help people better understand one another, not win a battle. After listening, you'll be reminded that a proper debate is not about victory, but that of inquiry, education, and viewpoint diversity. So tune in and talk amongst yourselves. You may even learn a thing or two.

Over the past six months, I’ve spent hundreds of hours researching trans ideology and the historical roles of gender in today’s changing world. 

In today’s episode, my guest is a friend and former colleague, Bee Davis. We worked together over 17 years ago in the world of advertising, and had not talked to each other since 2006. And one day on Facebook, I saw an announcement on her Feed that she was now identifying as trans (she formally identified as male), and immediately reached out to her on DM and asked her to join me on the program. 

Thankfully, she accepted.

During our chat, we discussed some of the most controversial aspects of trans ideology and gender dysphoria. We talked about Bee’s transition, her divorce, and the severe mental trauma that followed – including her attempted suicide and eventual healing. We then debated the topic of children on puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, trans females competing against natal females in sports, the historic role and purpose of the word gender, and how best to explore the idea of gender fluidity as a collective culture.

Bee and I didn't agree on everything, but we thoroughly enjoyed each other's company and both felt lucky to be back in touch. 

I hope you learned as much as I did and welcome any and all questions.
