About Nicnac And Their Podcast

Nicnac (she/they) is a passionate self-identifying autistic trans and queer person in her late 30s. Nicnac debuted her personal podcast The Nicnac Podcast in May of 2006. Her podcast features philosophical monologs and conversations with others about divergent life. Nicnac also hosts a dedicated series on flight simulation and other forms of computer simulation software called FSRideAlong which debuted in 2010.

In the past 15 years, Nicnac has produced over 400 episodes across their main podcast and their FSRideAlong Series. Nicnac has also volunteered her time in her community to produce and host audio content for radio and streaming media.

She is an all-around geek for learning about the world and its systems. As a result, she is extremely passionate about social justice and favors societal structures that ensure individual needs are met while working out communal concerns through Dynamic Governance and related processes. She is currently serving as an organizing council member of The Chico, California chapter of The Democratic Socialists of America.

As a creative person with a unique neurotype and a degree in game design, Nicnac places a high value on expressive projects. She believes that expressive projects are one of the better ways to cope with the phenomena of human life. She understands that neurodiversity means that every individual is unique. She hopes that the balance of her output proves to be a force for good.

Please listen and decide for yourself.

Show Notes

In this episode, Nicnac finds herself half hearing Anne Murray’s version of “You Won’t See Me”. This ties into her ongoing translation and recent coming-out day events in Nicnac’s mind. She does her best to info dump and tell her story in an entertaining way. With hopes that she may be able to do another conversation episode around this sort of topic with a friend soon.

Show Notes

In this episode, Nicnac talks about where she is in divergent life, transitioning and thinking back to a person they once knew in passing who was so cool.

Nicnac advises you to skip if you aren’t ready to bawl your eyes out with love. She thanks you for sticking with her!

In this episode, Nicnac returns to unscripted formate to talk more about their fantasy of love, their admiration, and envy of Robert Evans and their not-so-pleasant feelings about their hometown. It somehow turns into the internets strangest personal ad mixed with a pledge drive. Yep Nicnac is definitely divergent as hell. Please support their work!

Show Notes:

In this episode, Nicnac’s creativity and life train is jarringly derailed by their very frustrated body’s instance on closeness despite Nicnac’s mind objecting to the cries. This forces Nicnac to explore a different kind of date seeking despite their extremely rational objections and ongoing gender changes.

Nicnac hopes this episode can serve as an admittedly dramatized look into their mind and their loathing of the gender they were assigned at birth.

They hope they can find someone far from Hellhole, CA who can see them for who they are. And, that they might work together to actually climb the Denali that could be divergent love. For Nicnac knows that people are people too.

Show Notes

In the episode, Nicnac reflects on their second conversation with Antony and tries to signal where they want to go next. This leads Nicnac back to their creative process and the problem of not being commercial while having walked backward into broadcasting. They tie it all to John’s simple statement of fact that genius is pain while noting it has to be packaged in just the right way. Nicnac hopes they package it in the right way just often enough.

In this episode, Nicnac reflects on the horrors of 9/11 even from 2,800 miles and 20 years away and tells what they remember of that morning 20 years ago from the perspective of an isolated and burnt-out kid who loves flight sim and hates war and oppression…They talk about the dim view they take of the choices made by world leaders in the 20 years since that day and the 56 years prior to that day

Show Notes

In this episode, Nicnac thinks back to the horrors of being a child and having that natural wonder beaten down and suppressed. Although Nicnac has never been able to tolerate children (even as a child) they see and know the pain of childhood. They encourage those that do have the skills needed to be there for children to let them be human. They encourage adults to remember a free their inner child.
