In this episode, we are joined by Cunning Minx, the host of the Polyamory Weekly, the longest polyamory podcast on the internet. She joined us via Skype to share with us her experiences of what it is like to run such a successful podcast, some of her favorite guests, and her thoughts about the landscape of polyamory. It was an awesome chat. There’s even a fun twist at the end were you hear how we contribute to a potential future guest on her show!
Jennifer and Angela start the episode by discussing the tragedy of the shooting of Philando Castile and the importance to standing up against racial injustice for the non white members of the non-monogamy community.
For this episode, we are joined again by Shawny, a local sex educator and friend of Poly in the Cities (who you remember from our episode on abuse in kink) who has returned to our studio to join Angela in sharing their workshop on disclosure. This discussion is really helpful for everyone who is facing a difficult decision of disclosing something very personal (like being non-monogamous, for example) to someone very close to them. Give this one a listen. You’ll learn a lot!

We are joined by local sex and relationship therapist, Carise Rotach-Beard, who came to the Poly In The Cities lab to share with our listeners her recent workshop on jealousy. She brought her amazing blend of intelligence and f-bombs to schools us all on the topic and how to navigate this very complex emotion. It’s a really great listen.
