Episode 24: Kink and Non-Monogamy

Today we are joined by the amazing Mistress Mara, who is a professional Dominatrix in the local twin cities BDSM/Kink Community who came to the Poly In The Cities lab to talk with us not only about what exactly is kink, but how and why there is overlap between that and the non-monogamy community.  It was an incredible conversation.

Episode 23: When Communication Breaks Down

Jennifer gives listeners an update on her dog, Enki (and thanks everyone for their messages of support).  Angela discusses an article on the challenges of living in a triad relationship for the newswire segment.  Today, we are joined by Carey Heartborne who is a private mediator that specializes in Transformative Mediation (and who also happens to be non-mongamous) who brings us the unique perspective of how to view communication when it’s not going well.  It was an amazing conversation.

Episode 22: What’s With The Geeky Stereotype?

In this episode, we are joined by our friend James to examine what it is about the notion that people who are polyamorous are considered nerds and geeks.  James brings a factual perspective that really gets both of us thinking.  Angela contributes to the Poly In The Cities Newswire with an article by Scott Adam (author of the Dilbert Cartoon Strip) that explores how the concept of marriage is a poor engineering design.

We have some great listener mail too!
