This episode was meant to be centered on finding local community, meeting people near you, integrating into new polyamorous social circles, and so on - and went rather off the rails because I invited a very old friend to do it with me. Talya recently re-relocated (she was kind of migratory for a while) to Mexico City, and is exploring polyamory in that cultural context in a more serious way for the first time, which colored the conversation.
Current events colored the conversation.
Familial interruption colored the conversation.
So, I've cut you a delightful, entertaining, and (I think) educational episode of me picking this brilliant woman I've been lucky enough to call a friend for many years' brain, and I hope you enjoy it.
As always, the intro and outro music is provided by the talented Vince Conaway.

She has been polyamorous for more than a decade and draws on her experiences in polyamorous relationships, as well as her own mental health journey, to empower others to find their own ways of expressing their authenticity.
