Ex-colleagues host unique podcast show
By Chloe Gregg
At the close of Transgender Awareness Week in November, two former LCC colleagues, Daniel Thurman and Layne Ingram, released their first-ever podcast episode of their new show, “Reconstructed Man.”
The show is a wonderful mix of educational dives into their shared experiences transitioning from woman to man, rich storytelling, and humorous debates.
“The ‘Reconstructed Man’ podcast is really a place where we explore the Trans experience,” Ingram said. “Daniel and I share our personal experiences and our stories, and we try to share stories of other Trans people and amplify those voices.”
Ingram, who currently works at LCC as its Special Projects Coordinator and women’s basketball coach, wants to really showcase what it is like to be Transgender and what it means to go through the process of transitioning.
He said that “Reconstructed Man” is for everyone.
“We say (the show) is for Trans, cis, and everywhere in between,” Ingram said.
Ingram and Thurman met while working at LCC in 2013. They both said they feel comfortable talking with each other about their experiences, and that others would benefit from listening.
“We love talking to each other and we love being crazy, and have no problems sharing our personal stories,” Thurman said. “It fit in the very beginning for us.”
“Reconstructed Man” is available on multiple platforms. It’s a film podcast, meaning listeners can also view the podcast on Ingram and Thurman’s YouTube channel, The Reconstructed Man Podcast.
If viewing isn’t preferred, people can listen to the podcast on any of their favorite podcast apps such as Apple, Stitcher, Spotify, Amazon and Google.
