Just got this P.S. in an email from a PW listener who is my new Best Friend:
You are the best thing to happen to Poly since Heinlein.
OK, SO not the case, but hearing that someone thinks that will just make me whine that much less this week when the temp hits 105 in my recording studio!

After five attempts totalling over two hours yesterday, PW is still loading as an empty file. I’ve contated LibSyn about the issue. Trying once more this morning, but after that, I won’t be able to devote any more time to PW until Thursday at best.
I’m aware of the problem with the PW #65 file being empty. It showed as uploaded, but came up empty. This is most likely due to iTunes’ implementing new categories this week with their proprietary tagging system. Will fix as soon as I get home tonight.
For anyone who might feel so inclined…
The Podcast Awards are now open for nominations. If you like PW and think it’s nifty, why not give minx some strokes by nominating it for an award in the “Mature” category?
True, it has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning against TRULY “Mature” podcasts with hundreds of thousands of listeners, but hey, a little validation for poly can go a long way!
The new Polyamory Weekly #65 is up! Direct download is here.
Intro, under-18 warning and re-direction to www.scarleteen.com. And thanks to guests , Karen and Stan for co-hosting today’s show!
