1:30 Listener mail
2:30 OhPun comments on poly photos in the office and minx muses about how to feel out her vanilla potential dates on the poly front; 8:10 Scaramouche says in an audio comment that it’s OK to use the show for personal dating advice
9:35 Topic: Poly and legal issues
Amiee sent in two documents, including one by Elizabeth Emens entitled Monogamy’s Law: Compulsory Monogamy and Polyamorous Existence, which sounds very poly-friendly; and another document by Maura Strassburg. I do not yet have permission to reprint these, so no links yet.

14:10 A poly comedienne
In the Feast of Fools podcast #300, a Chicago-based podcast focused on the gay lifestyle, the hosts interview comedienne Margaret Cho, who speaks nonchalantly about being poly being more “realistic” and “normal.”
16:15 Poly in the Media
Despreocupado sent in Three’s Company: What the heck is polyamory and is it a legitimate way to sustain a romantic relationship? by Liz Langley. More interesting than the article itself are the 151 comments on it, with opinions ranging from the steadfastly monogamous to the misinformed to the poly-educated proclaiming the value of choosing a poly family. 23:00 Amy Gahran sent in this article on Beltane events in Philadelphia, including a commentary on polyamory and jealousy. 26:00 I don’t really disagree too much with the issues as to why the polygamy portrayed in Big Love don’t work that William Saletan enumerates in this article, Big or Me.
