Episode 3

Asexuality

Both Sarah and Christof had very different realizations when they stumbled across the label that seemed most fitting to them. Sarah felt relieved and empowered but Christof felt quite different. I’m grateful to them both for sharing their personal experiences.

About This Episode

I’m incredibly excited for this episode, mostly because I had the pleasure of interviewing two very open and opinionated people about a very personal topic.

A huge thanks to Christof and Sarah for being open to chatting with me on the subject of asexuality. As someone who didn’t know much about the topic, I was grateful to them both for speaking honestly, sharing their experiences and getting into their pet peeves!

Both had very different realizations when they stumbled across the label that seemed most fitting to them. Sarah felt relieved and empowered but Christof felt quite different. I’m grateful to them both for sharing their personal experiences. This was a huge topic and we only skimmed the surface. I hope that this episode is educational, or perhaps even relatable. I’d love you to share your thoughts in the comments.

A very special thanks to Myles Ogilvie of MO Audio & Production for doing an amazing job fixing the sound and making the podcast sound so professional! If you enjoyed our intimate conversation then feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this page or rate us highly over on iTunes!
