After speaking to his sister Annika and visiting Coarline's grave alone, Julian finds an essay from a woman who lost her husband overseas. In her essay she notes the small rituals we do to attempt to reach those we've lost, be it her daughter's tapping on her bedroom door or her widowed father's conversations with his long-dead wife.  When we whisper into the dark, do you think anyone hears us?  Today's music was "Home" by Reeder licensed under Creative Commons 3.0 Share-alike License.

Julian welcomes his sister to the show. Although Annika was Coraline’s best friend and the reason Julian met his wife, the two siblings have not talked since Coraline’s death. With Annika now in Seattle, they discuss the day-to-day difficulties of being a transperson, the importance of honoring “dead names", the roles men and women are forced into by society, and the two grieve over the woman they both loved. Today’s episode was written and performed by Elliott Rose and Seranine Elliot. To see more of Seranine’s work go to: Seranine.com If you’d like a full transcript of this show, go to wolpod.com
