Show Notes for Polyamory Weekly #19:
This week’s edition is all-listener-directed, all the time! We tickle issues of using tokens or actions to distinguish poly relationships, of dealing with metamours we don’t especially like, of facing prejudices towards the poly lifestyle, and we even finish up by asking if anyone has gone mono after being poly and why.
Questions? Comments? Email minx at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the listener comment line at 206-600-5677. Thanks for listening!
