out_cast: A podcast about queer and disabled communities

Have You Heard? is where the Pod Bible team meet the people behind the podcasts you may not have heard of yet. out_cast is a podcast that talks about issues regarding queer and disabled communities. We caught up with host Delta to learn more about the show…
Who are you and what is your podcast about?

My name is Delta and I’m a 23 year old queer and disabled person and my podcast is about exactly that: issues regarding queer and disabled communities, sometimes on a more basic level for non-queer and non-disabled listeners and sometimes I talk about some of the intracommunity issues for people who are either queer and/or disabled themselves or more familiar with these communities. Very rarely I make episodes about other things, but these are still usually through a queer and disabled lens.

What’s the first podcast you ever listened to?

I actually didn’t listen to podcasts until 2019 when my partner introduced me to the medium. The first podcast I listened to must have been either Queersplaining or The Cis Are Getting Out of Hand, two podcasts I still enjoy to this day.

Why did you decide to start podcasting in the first place?

I grew up in a small village with not really any queer or disabled people around, so a few years ago my only outlet was Instagram, where I’d write small essays under pictures that I posted and quite a few people liked them. Then I moved to a different country and became even more isolated from my communities in a way, as due to my disabilities I can’t really get around town on my own, so I was online a lot. I’d write a lot of threads on Twitter, but I wanted something “more professional” I guess that wasn’t made of 15 Tweets and that would be easier to find. I also wanted something I could send to people so I wouldn’t have to explain the same things over ans over. I could just refer them to one place. I started a blog in 2020 that lasted about two months (Thanks, ADHD). Last year, I taught myself a little bit about audio editing and realised that I could just try to start a podcast. I love listening to podcasts, they’re my favourite medium, so why not make one myself? That’s how out_cast was born and it’s the one outlet that has lasted and is still filling me with joy.

Which podcasts do you take inspiration from?

I take inspiration from many podcasts that I personally listen to, but mostly the guestless episodes of Queersplaining, as well as Gender Journeys, which is the only podcast I’ve found that addresses things from *inside* trans and genderqueer communities without being an interview podcast.

Who’s your dream guest for the podcast?

I haven’t really had guests on my podcast, but I would probably like to have friends on, or many of the fellow podcasters I love listening to, like Callie Wright, Sarah and Kayla from Sounds Fake But Okay or Laura from Bad Attitudes.

What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt so far as a podcaster?

It doesn’t have to be perfect. When I started podcasting, I was a big perfectionist about editing. Ironically, due to disability I sometimes struggle with speech and with putting complex thoughts and ideas into spoken words, so I will often repeat words or sentences, mumble by accidents or slur my words, or even be silent for a long time. I still edit out the silence but not so much of the other things. I am disabled so I talk like a disabled person and “perfection” isn’t something I can or even want to attain anymore, especially doing everything myself too. You don’t need a particular voice to be a podcaster.

Which episode would you say is the perfect introduction to your podcast?

Probably my 30th episode titled “they asked WHAT about queer people?!” where I address misconceptions about different forms of queerness in a light-hearted way by answering questions that people frequently type into Google.
