If a Pfefferman falls in a forest and no one's around to hear it ... who will they blame?

Welcome back to Girls on Transparent where hosts Jessie Katz and Darah Golub continue their debate over who came out on top in Season 2 of Amazon's Emmy-winning series Transparent. The last episode of the podcast left us wading through the weeds of the Friendship category before heading into the thorniest territory of all - Fornication.

For a show like Transparent, that subject is all-encompassing and gets us right to the heart of the matter, which is how each character is gradually transitioning into some other - often truer - version of themselves, be it Ali's sociosexual awakening, Sarah's tiptoeing into S&M fantasy, Maura's love affair with an empathic cheese monger, Shelly's bath time delights or, where it all leads back to: Grandma Rose and Tante Gittel in 1930s Berlin. Is pain really inherited? Is "Not Attached To Outcome" a real dating policy? And what exactly is sexburgers?!
