Episode 46: Living In A Triad with Jeff Leavell

For this episode, we are joined by author Jeff Leavell who you may recall we discussed in Episode 23 last season with his article in Vice Magazine about the challenges of living in a triad relationship.  He has graciously agreed to join us via Skype to share with our listeners his perspectives on what it takes to make triad relationships work, his view on polyamory, and the latest developments on his relationships.

Jeff was brutally honest, vulnerable and most importantly, unapologetic about who he is and how he lives his life.  We want to thank him for such an amazing conversation.

 

Here’s where you can follow Jeff to keep up on his daily life with his triad:

Recording delayed

What a way to start Season 3, huh?

The power at Jennifer’s house, where the recording studio is located, has been out all day.  The local power company is working on restoring service as fast as they can, but in light of this event we will need to delay our recording and publishing of Episode 43 for a couple of days.

It will be up in a couple of days.  We apologize for the delay.

Eat the fucking cake,
Jennifer
