DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis welcomes trans actor-writer-activist Jen Richards to his condo to discuss the Emmy-nominated web-series "Her Story," about the dating lives of trans women in LA.  She talks about the origins of the series, crushing on her co-creator, getting fan mail from places like Estonia and Bangladesh and landing a trans designer to make her Emmy dress.  She also talks about the decision to transition, what surprised her most about life as a woman, appearing on season one of "I Am Cait," her favorite interaction with Caitlyn Jenner and going home to see family in North Carolina and having to deal with the state's anti-trans bathroom law. Other topics include: getting "lucky" in her transitioning, starting the Trans 100, why she got so into activism, the writing tips she got from "Transparent's" Jill Solloway, having foodgasms, period talk, hitting the ladies room with Kerry Washington, visiting the White House and the moment from her childhood she'd like to relive.
