Between-the-seasons: Minisode with Reema Zaman

Reema Zaman is a 35-year-old, cis-gender woman who describes herself as Bangladeshi, heterosexual, monogamous, and single. She released the book “I Am Yours” in February 2019. It is the story of reclaiming her voice after years of trauma and abuse. I spoke with Reema ahead of the release of her book, but for technical reasons we weren’t able to release the full interview as part of the regular season. But the interview was so good that I didn’t want to lose it all, so I’ve pulled together some portions to share with you today.
