The BinderCast is the only podcast exclusively devoted to women and gender non-conforming writers and their careers. In each episode, co-hosts Lux Alptraum and Leigh Stein tackle the essential questions of making it as a writer. Produced by Jennifer Lai.

Who will give you permission to tell your story – and do you even need to ask for it? Bestselling memoirist Jillian Lauren (Some Girls, Everything You Ever Wanted) explains how writing two memoirs had an impact on her personal life, and what writers should (and shouldn’t) worry about before penning a true life tale.
