    On October 4, 2002 Lyena and Dean decided to go hiking. They'd only been dating for a few weeks and Lyena wasn’t sure how she felt about Dean, and it’s all she could think about. Why did she like him so much? Where did this insane attraction come from? Was he the one? That’s when she saw it: a perfect oak tree. She knew if she could just climb up and commune with nature, she’d get clarity and feel better. What she didn’t know was that climbing that tree would change both of their lives, forever. Thank you for listening to the first season of The Moment!

    When Kevin hooked up with his girlfriend’s friend, he assumed the relationship would end. Antoinette didn’t mind. In fact, she was glad he was dating other people, because that meant she could, too. Humans are capable of so much love, they figured - why limit themselves to just one person? And Ingrid wonders if saying yes to one person means saying no to everyone else?

    Want to learn more about Polyamory? Kevin's written several books on the topic, including Love's Not Color Blind, a breakdown of how race and polyamory intersect, and For Hire: Operator, a queer, poly POC graphic novel.
