Why we didn't produce an episode for eights months and what to expect from Poly Weekly moving forward.

0:00 Introduction and host chat

1:00 Host chat: why haven’t we produced for eight months

  • Puppy!
  • COVID pandemic left me frustrated, helpless, and unmotivated to podcast
  • Stay-at-home had a negative effect on our relationship for a while
  • Lack of access to coping strategies. Swimply is the app to rent outdoor pools by the hour.
  • George Floyd, BLM, CHAZ/CHOP, federal stormtroopers, kids being tear gassed

14:30 What Poly Weekly will be moving forward

We’ll be talking more about politics when it’s relevant. We believe it should be OK to talk about politics, like we believe it should be OK to talk about sex. The personal is political. And we’ll be making calls to action like this one: volunteer with the critical senatorial runoff election in Georgia, donate to Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight, or donate or volunteer for the candidates Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock.

And the name of the show is still Poly Weekly, so we’ll still be giving relationship advice, sharing happy poly moments, and addressing your feedback. We’ll just also be sprinkling in more politics when it’s relevant.

If that isn’t your thing, we invite you to subscribe to the Multiamory podcast or listen to Esther Perel’s sex podcast or any other poly- or sex-oriented podcast.
