Been A Long Time Gone
Reese Hawkins: business analyst, improv comedian, musician, Reddit-famous, and small-time renegade. On this episode I interview a man who, three years ago, effectively disappeared from his small Kentucky town to start a new life in Nashville. He posted his story on Reddit a few months ago and received a fairly large response from readers. He is now writing a book on his experiences and gave a condensed version of that for the show.

Mrs. Turnblad Goes To Stonewall
Yael: actor, student, woman. For the first episode I interviewed Yael, a 20-year-old student and actor studying in Alabama. To the public she presents as a cisgender man, when in reality she is a transgender woman. We discuss her gender identity and how it may not align with her chosen profession at times. Having played almost exclusively male roles, she has had to reconcile her personal feelings with the characters she has portrayed. I am aware that the language I use throughout our conversation is not the most appropriate language when discussing transgender issues. I am learning and trying to do better.

Hi, I’m Joseph Choi and this is Off Paper. I made this podcast to explore the nature of all the identities we can have. Each episode I will be interviewing people with alter egos, second lives, and complex history. I decided to call this podcast Off Paper because I feel there are so many aspects of who we are that never get written down. In making this show, I’ve learned more about my own prejudices I didn’t know I carried and listened to incredible stories from everyday people. I look forward to sharing these stories with you and I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I have.
