The Made of Human Podcast, also called MohPod, is about connection. I sit down with a lovely person and we talk about life. I want to find out how to cope with being an adult person. I want to find out how to deal with all of the confusing bits of life. All of the hurtful bits of life. I want to sit, for just an hour, with a great person and learn from them. And - if they have no idea how to 'adult', then that will be absolutely okay - at least we will have an hour of feeling like we're not the only ones in the world.

Sofie talks to returning guest comedian, writer and sex worker Avery Edison about being transgender, feeling like a dinosaur, why “cops aren’t human”, restorative justice, what comedy and sex work have in common, bi-polar disorder, being sent to a men's prison in Canada, the difference between handcuffs and manacles, the Jamie Bulger case and removing emotion from the justice system.

Trigger warning: Imprisonment, suicidal thoughts.
