I had the opportunity to interview Amber Neko Meador http://amberneko.com/, author of the fantastic speculative fiction book Otherselves. Available right now on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LJL1AYE and in print at the end of July 2014, with an audio book, narrated by Amber herself, available in the fall of 2014.
If you enjoyed the book, or this interview, make sure to review the book on Amazon, and help other transgender individuals find this book by generating Amazon recommendations. You’re not just doing Amber a favor, you’re also helping out people like me, who so very much need to see positive role models in their lives.

During the show, Ghost in the Shell came up. If you found Otherselves interesting, you will absolutely love Ghost in the Shell. Check out the trailer and read the Rotten Tomato review here http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/ghost_in_the_shell/
You can read more about Kristen Beck, who I feel absolutely stupid about not remembering, on her Wiki page here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kristin_Beck She is another amazing trans woman, who would be an awesome dream guest.
If, while listening to this, you’re pulling out your hair screaming “SURROGATES!!!!” to your earbuds, its probably because you remembered that’s the name of the Bruce Willis movie featuring the kind of transcendence that Amber features in Otherselves. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0986263/
