Denise Chanterelle DuBois has lived an outrageous life right out of a TV show like Narcos or Orange is the New Black. A closeted trans woman in the 80s, Denise was a cocaine dealer in Southern California until she got caught with a kilo, went to prison, and then managed to get out after serving only four and a half months.

In her new memoir Self-Made Woman, Denise takes us on a roller coaster ride through her adventures as a transgender gal surviving drug addiction, alcoholism, car crashes, risky sex and life behind bars.

Listen as Denise Chanterelle DuBois joins us to talk about her life as a cocaine dealer, being a tour guide in Costa Rica and why she handed out donut holes to the public to celebrate a major trans victory.
