About this Episode
Arlill tells the story of how they discovered podcasts (through an earlier interest in gaming) and how they came to produce Random Chatterings: a show that covers ‘all aspects of pop culture including video games, movies, television shows, and the internet at large’.
Content warning: suicidal ideation, depression, transphobia, violence and some coarse language

- Please note this important distinction between the terms, as explained on the second webpage linked above (under Relationship to transgender): ’The term transgender was coined by John Oliven in 1965. By the 1990s, transsexual had come to be considered a subset of the umbrella term transgender. The term transgender is now more common, and many transgender people prefer the designation transgender and reject transsexual.’
