This week, we welcome Kathy Tu to the show.
Kathy is a beloved podcaster (Nancy, New York Times Opinion) who Tyler knows from his time working in public radio in Chicago.
In this conversation, Kathy opens up about growing up somewhat distant from her parents which in turn caused her to become closer to her friends. She tells us how she came out to her mother and how it wasn’t received well. She also goes on to reflect on her relationship with her father and how he isn't the best at expressing his feelings. Kathy also tells us about the relationships in her life now, including the one with her wife Britteny.

This Is My Family is an unapologetically full-hearted interview show about building a life with the people we love.
As a gay dad in an interracial marriage, host Tyler Greene’s life is a testament to the fact that there are many ways to define family today. Each week, his conversations with guests reveal funny and heartfelt stories about how you can make a family, and how your family makes you.
