Show Notes

Meg is shifting into baby mode - and here to help us pinpoint the exact moment of the twins' conception (yes, there is a sneaky, fade-to-black sex scene in this chapter!) is the poet and filmmaker Stephen Ira. Stephen is the author of the chapbook Chasers, and his poetry has appeared in the Paris Review, among other publications. He graduated from the Iowa Writers' Workshop in 2019 and he was a 2014 Lambda Literary Fellow. His film "I have to think of us as separate people" screened at OutFest, NewFest, and the New Orleans Film Festival, and he starred in the 2022 film Framing Agnes, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won both an Audience Award and an Innovator Prize.
