Smart, Bold Conversations

I really appreciate Nicole’s bold approach to this show. The guests are brilliant. These progressive conversations question everything and inspire listeners to keep the ideas flowing.

Boundary crossing!

Modern Anarchy intertwines relationships, politics, societal structures, and more in ways that so few other podcasts are doing. So many podcasts that discuss alternative styles to living/relationship often seem to do so in a bubble that ignores social structures OR are very aggressive in their views on society. In this podcast however, Nicole acknowledges the complexities of it all and approaches conversations in such a gentle and open-minded way. I also love the nomination approach to finding speakers - it makes for really great conversations with people that might not otherwise be heard.

Traymond2 ,

Progressive and Insightful

This podcast takes on modern conceptions of sexual pleasure and how we “should” be experiencing pleasure. By completely putting aside societal expectations and giving herself space to have new experiences Nicole has opened so many doors that I didn’t know existed. Interesting, insightful, and feel-good. You leave the episode feeling empowered.
