This week, rugby athlete and commentator Alice Soper beams up from Wellington, New Zealand. She chats with Dawn and Karleigh about World Rugby's proposed trans ban, her own story of competing, coming out lesbian and politics here and there. She's not only friends with the prime minister of her country, she has her on speed dial! BTW New Zealand just became the first English-speaking country to add Mx. as an option on its voter registration forms! And Alice reveals she's a fan of fantasy novels, and spills the tea on why New Zealand has a love/hate relationship with NZ native filmmaker Peter Jackson, who filmed the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies there.
