Nicky, Nida and Daria take a warts-and-all look at the third season (well, all three seasons really, but mainly the third) of Transparent, Amazon's drama-comedy about the family of a trans parent. (Oh! That's what that means.) Themes of Jewishness, gender (trans-, cis- and otherwise), stereotypes, representation, family, catchphrases and more get the FNLS treatment this week.
(Apologies: some ongoing equipment issues have left some small amounts of interference in this episode.)
