Everyone should listen to this podcast!
I’m not a huge fan of podcasts because I find myself to get distracted often. Yet that is NOT the case with Sex with Strangers podcast. Chris Sowa comes off as an amazing guy; funny, respectful, interesting, etc. The topics are FAR from boring and the interviews are always enlightening. I’ve learned so much from this podcast and it has pushed me to learn more!
Thumbs up! Andy using the word solely (Lol)
I have enjoyed listening to the podcast episodes1, 2, and 3. By the way, I found it amusing that on episode 2 the host mentioned he set up a Grindr profile "SOLELY for interviews". LOL, I think everybody understood he said it up for interviews. Including the word "solely" was overkill. Lol
I’m SO impressed by Chris’s handling of Asexuality and Aromanticism as topics. He really did his research, and this episode (#50) was genuinely interesting and entertaining. Thanks for all the info and the professional way in which you approach all your topics!
