Podcast by Probably Poly



    While everyone deals with mourning, as non-monogamous individuals we also need to be able and willing to support our partners through the loss of other partners. In this episode we deal with loss and how to mourn losses and integrate those adjustments into your own life as well as some of the best ways to support others do the same.

    All forms of loss cause morning and being able to morn and help those we are in relationships with mourn is one of our most important abilities.

    Next Online Chat Saturday July 25th from 5pm to 7pm. We’ll have more details for you soon, but we are changing platforms (shockingly for ethics reasons). But also going to a monthly format because our children return to activities bi-weekly meetings are no longer reasonable for us.

    Relationship Games(the good kind)

    Relationship Games(the good kind)

    Join us this week for a lighter, but still socially responsible, discussion of how to use relationship games to improve your long distance relationships by adding depth and allowing emotional bonding on par with in person relationships. This episode is of course a little more explicit than our regular content. This episode both introduces these concepts and explores the philosophy that undergirds their use and appeal.

    No zoom chat this upcoming week. We meant to announce that but forgot. More details coming soon.

    No Oppression Stands Alone

    No Oppression Stands Alone

    I do not have a pithy teaser for you this week. This episode was difficult to record and difficult to edit. We explain why all of us who want to lay a claim to being ethical must participate in the Black Lives Matter movement to the best of our ability, why all oppression must be fought everywhere and every time we find it, and why ENM and Polyamory are fundamentally radical and anti oppression. If we made any mistakes in dealing with this extremely complex and sensitive material please let us know so we can correct them as fast as possible.

    NPR details the history of Race and Policing: https://www.npr.org/2020/06/13/876628302/the-history-of-policing-and-race-in-the-u-s-are-deeply-intertwined

    CNN shows white wealth at 10 times black wealth and black income at only 60% of white income in the USA: https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/03/politics/black-white-us-financial-inequality/index.html

    NYT describes the history of the racial wealth dived in the USA and how it has been maintained: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/racial-wealth-gap.html?mtrref=undefined&assetType=REGIWALL&mtrref=www.nytimes.com&gwh=75B09384540BDF2327841A1263870EE4&gwt=pay&assetType=REGIWALL

    “A Potent interaction of socialist, feminist, and antiracist radicalism converged with new conceptions of sexuality from the 1910s to the 1930s to produce a period of openness in the United States that allowed sex radicals to convey explosive messages about the centrality of sex to human well-being, about women’s sexual desire and autonomy, and about the sexual rights of African Americans and same-sex lovers.” Quote From: “Making Marriage Modern: Women’s Sexuality from the Progressive Era to World War II” by Christina Simmons

    Charlotte Uprising 2020

    Charlotte Uprising 2020

    This week we made our first episode in a new series we are calling Probably Poly Particulars. This is basically a zoomed in topic done as a video and we were so fortunate to have Ash Williams of Charlotte Uprising, a local organizer working in the BLM movement on the show to talk about the amazing work they are doing in charlotte. The only problem is no one knows we do video's yet. So we are releasing it as a podcast as well to signal boost to as many people as possible.

    Its Probably Not Autonomy

    Its Probably Not Autonomy

    Join us as we look at common claims against autonomy inside of relationships and expose how we are likely not talking about autonomy and even if we are it may not be the most helpful lens to use. Along the way we troubleshoot what you are most likely dealing with and approaches to resolving those sorts of issues.

    We Are What We Do

    We Are What We Do

    In this episode we break down the perceived barrier between doing and being and examine how what we do makes up who we are and how even those things that we might think of as being intrinsic are still projects whether we realize it or not.

A mindful and precise listen

This podcast is conscious and well researched. They put great effort into being correct and inclusive on all topics. The main host is well
spoken and is always willing to correct any information as needed. They are all involved in the community and put great effort in the finished product. Also, as far as editing style, the sound is clean and the pace consistent. Michael edits out dead air and unneeded transitions. The listener’s time is respected, and the pace is very satisfying.
