78. Avery Edison #2 - Police aren't human, cops aren't human
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.
