Fantastic

I have learned so much and it seems like they have an episode on every topic I could think of about relationships (and many topics that never occurred to me). This is such an amazingly helpful and educational podcast that makes me feel so much less alone and weird. Thanks for your hard work and insightful views!

Lovely content; binged a bunch, and got tired

This podcast is such a wonderful resource for all things poly, ENM, and just general relationship dynamic. The hosts are lovely and genuine people who try to check their privileges, engage the audience, and educate in an empathetic way... But after bingeing about 25 episodes, I did get tired of the accidental exclusion of so much racial/ethnic minority information, data, and considerations. I have done a lot of research and reading on cultural diversity throughout my formal and informal education, and it's so important to note how much even current science and research is still very lackluster for minority groups. The hosts are very well educated on queer inclusion (evident by their knowledge, the things they reference, they way they call out privileges and stereotypes and social issues related to sex, gender, sexual orientation, etc), but not as strong in areas of racial/ethnic diversity. Don't get me wrong, I still love what the podcast has provided for me, and I am always charmed by the hosts. I just need a long break (it's already been about a year since I listened to an episode) before I can pick it up again without cringing inside.
