Podcasts by and Featuring Trans Women

While queer visibility is more prominent in podcasting than other mediums, podcasting still has a long way to go before it an sit on its laurels. The work by trans women in particular is often ignored in listens, let alone monetary support. The following is a running list of podcasts by and featuring trans women, regardless of genre.

If your podcast is made by, with, or featuring trans women, please contact me and I will add yours to the list, including your support links.

Magic Folk

Magic Folk is an actual play Dungeons and Dragons 5e podcast. Follow our swole Druid, axe wielding Bird Barbarian, hopelessly geeky Bard, and – for some time – impulsive Dragonborn Wizard as they travel through the kingdom of Ossul and beyond. Our ‘Rowdy Party’ aspires to both deeply move you and make you cackle with a character driven, joke heavy, mechanic light adventure featuring original music by Victoria Watkins & Kyle Bruenning.

We believe in the importance of representation. Collectively, our players are non-binary, genderfluid, pansexual, Jewish, neurodivergent, and more. We feel that our personal voices are important, and also seek to include player characters and NPCs representing marginalized identities.

Moonbase Theta, Out

It is 2098. The Moonbase program, owned and operated by corporate enclaves back on Earth, has been determined unprofitable. The last base, Theta, is twenty weeks from being decommissioned. Most of the crew is in stasis awaiting retrieval. Five remain – Roger Bragado-Fischer, Nessa Cheong, Ashwini Ray, Michell L’Anglois, and Wilder.

In Season 1, Roger Bragado-Fischer, Communications, reported to management in a series of official weekly broadcasts. In Season 2, we experience the personal side of the same series of events through each character’s voices – their private journal entries, messages sent to one another and those they care for, so far away. And from that distance, we hear at least one voice in reply.

Join the crew of Moonbase Theta, as well as Roger’s husband Alex from back on Earth, as they reach out to share the beauty, the isolation and frustration, the love and enmity, the humour, and the tragedy, as they all count down to the operation’s end.

Here, even the shadows have shadows, and something is stirring that threatens not only to consume the whole of this bastion of the fantastical, but the entire world. As she unravels the mysteries of Encrucijada, Diya learns to rely on new friends and allies. There’s Aoife, her landlady, will-they-won’t-they girlfriend, and oh, yeah, 1000 year old warrior, the changeling twins Tik and Tok, 700 year old preteens always looking for their next mark, and Clio, Isimud, and Mr. Enki, Diya’s eccentric co-workers at The Fount Bookstore. With them at her side, Diya confronts old and new evils, and in the process discovers who she truly can be.
