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 by scottie hall, creator and facilitator of Dharma Core, a Minneapolis based Queer Meditation Community group that is a part of the Common Ground Meditation Center. They came to the Poly In The Cities lab to share how the philosophies of Buddhism can compliment polyamory. It was a very insight dialogue.
Our homegirl, Carise, will be giving her Jealousy workshop again on July 14th!! If you enjoyed listening to her discuss the topic on Episode 38 and are in the Minneapolis area, be sure to check it out.

Can you believe that unless you look specifically for “Poly In The Cities” in iTunes, we don’t come up any other way?! That’s because we don’t have enough reviews to be considered worthy enough to be mentioned by the system. I know, I know. I’m rolling my eyes too…..
Angela and I are continuously humbled by your emails telling us how our show has helped you and we are working very hard to bring you bigger and better episodes for Season 3. It’s going to be amazing! We really can’t wait.
But we need to take this time to ask all of YOU for your help.
Please take a few moments to go to iTunes or Stitcher and leave a 5 Star review telling other potential listeners how you feel about Poly In The Cities and how you think it could help other folks who either new to non-monogamy or for folks who have been with the community for a long time.
If you can’t do either, no worries! You are still the best listeners that two podcasters can ever ask for. You can still tell other people about us by word of mouth or by helping others subscribe to us on their smart phones (we’ve heard that that was a thing!)
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!
Here is the run through for BRAINN as described by Angela and Shawny:
B – What are the Benefits?
R – What are the Risks?
A – What is an Alternative?
I – What does your Intuition say?
N– What if you do Nothing?
N– What do you do Next?
