IWEIGH-125-20220830-TravisAlabanza-ACv02-DYN.mp3 Jameela [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil a podcast against shame. I hope you’re well. I’m actually alright and I’m very excited about today’s episode because I have one of my favorite humans, Travis Alabanza, on the pod, teaching me so much with the most beautiful tones and patience in their voice. I love Travis. I’ve learned so much from them since our first ever time meeting, in which I just walked away from this I think it was like a Zoom chat that we were doing a roundtable around transphobia in the United Kingdom. And I remember singling out Travis and just thinking, fucking hell I have to watch what this person’s going to do, because I think they’re going to be a really, really important voice for the next generation. And seeing the way that they’ve gone on to thrive since then has proven me completely right. I have learned a lot from Travi
