    Change can be scary. And in today’s world of ever-evolving language around gender and identity, it can make it hard for someone to ask questions without feeling judged or misunderstood.

    In today’s episode, host Calan Breckon opens up the conversation around navigating non-binary with genderqueer author Jason June and what his journey was like and how it now informs his work as a writer.

    Together they explore questions like…

    • What is Non-Binary and what does it mean to be non-binary?
    • What’s the most important thing people need to know about Non-binary and genderqueer people?
    • Why do you think we’re experiencing more of a conversation around gender and gender identities in recent years?
    • and much more!

    After this episode, you'll have a better understanding of the term Non-Binary and how you can navigate this ever-evolving and growing landscape around gender and identity.

    About today’s Guest: Jason June (it's a two-name first name, like Mary-Kate without the hyphen or the Olsen twin) is a genderqueer writer mermaid who loves to create picture books that mix the flamboyantly whacky with the slightly dark, and young adult contemporary rom-coms full of love and lust and hijinks.

    When not writing, JJ zips about Austin, Texas. He loves dinosaurs, unicorns, Pomeranians, and anything magical that takes you to a different world or time. JJ is a tried and true Laura Dern stan, and he is actively looking for an Andalite friend.

    • What does spirituality mean to you?
    • What in your life brought you to spirituality?
    • What does your spiritual practice involve?
    • Where can someone start if they want to develop a spiritual practice?

    Whether you’re spiritual or religious or neither, this episode will give you much to think about when it comes to nurturing that deeper connection to something greater.

    Guilt and shame are two of the most challenging emotions we encounter. For those who grew up with a religious or spiritual belief system, guilt and shame can have a uniquely traumatic impact on your sense of self and in your relationships.

    In this episode, host Michael DiIorio speaks with inter-faith community leader, Jeremy Russo, who has used his experience with spiritual abuse to become a leader in the queer community helping others overcoming their own spiritual and religious trauma.

    In this episode we cover:

    1. The similarities and differences between guilt and shame
    2. What is spiritual abuse and religious trauma
    3. The unique impact this has on queer people
    4. Resources and tips to help along your healing journey

    Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, this episode will help you better understand and navigate your way through guilt and shame.

    TODAY'S GUEST: Jeremy Russo of Emerge, an inter-faith and ecumenical space for the “nones and dones,” LGBTQIA+ people, women, people of color, individuals with different abilities, ex-vangelicals, and anyone who feels like their voice and spiritual journey was discouraged or silenced by institutional churches.
