Note: the following story contains a mention of self-harm.

In May, the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request by the State of Idaho, the latest turn in a potentially precedent-setting case that could change the medical treatment some transgender inmates receive. Now the plaintiff, named Adree Edmo, is set to undergo gender confirmation surgery in July. if that happens, she’ll make history. 

Boise State Public Radio and the Mountain West News Bureau have been following Edmo’s story for the last 18 months in our award-winning podcast LOCKED. About a year ago, we brought you the first episode of the podcast. Now, let’s listen to the final episode.
