#73 The Rod and Anya Show, Part 2: A Conversation with my Dad

Back by popular demand, everyone's favorite gay dad returns to the podcast. We picked up right where we left off - diving deeper into the topic of identity. We discuss my Dad's childhood, how being raised by psychotherapists/sex therapists lead to overstimulation and anxiety, but also emotional fluency. We talk about identity as a construct and how my dad navigated his identity throughout the 70s, 80s & beyond, and we discuss my Dad's lifelong passion for theatre & how reacquainting ourselves with the importance of stories might lead us to embody ourselves and our identity more fully.

Saucy Rod's book recommendations: The Complete Lyrics of Cole Porter, Scandinavian Design by Charlotte and Peter Fiell and The Trouble with Normal by Michael Warner

Songs featured: "When You Come Back Down" by Nickel Creek & "Star People" by George Michael
