    Kink is exciting. It has definitely opened up new realms of possibility for us. Having said that, it really highlights the importance of consent, communication, and most of all TRUST with the partners you are engaging with. This is amplified when you are disabled (and otherwise marginalized). We are joined again by Roxanne Chanel Murray to unpack these ideas.

So raw and real that it feels like I’m eavesdropping

This is an excellent podcast. There are so many worthy topics touched upon. Though I don’t have MS I’m finding so much value in all of the issues discussed. After a year of seeing multiple specialists for an unknown condition (which I know by comparison is not that long) hearing was these stories have given me a sense of not being alone. The elevation of Black voices have really taught me to listen and own my mistakes and then be able to move on from these mistakes rather than letting them paralyze me. Daana and Dawn are so candid and they bring that out in their guests. Today I drove around the block to finish an episode. So good.
