Default Podcast: The New Sexual Revolution: Polyamory On The Rise

The New Sexual Revolution: Polyamory On The Rise

Presented by the radio show 1A - which is produced by WAMU and distributed by NPR radio, this is a professional broadcast quality presentation (47 minutes). The presentation features well known poly authors: Janet Hardy (The Ethical Slut) and Elizabeth Sheff (The Polyamorists Next Door).

The information is essentially basic introductory material for the general public but sure is nice to see poly being covered in such a professional manner by such a highly regarded network.

I listened to that show and meant to post it. I think they had too many "experts" on at once for a fairly short show. It was a bit jumbled.

I thought that was an excellent presentation. I particularly enjoyed the way they collected people's requests for feedback and advice, and had the featured speakers answer those questions. I was also pleased that they featured two of the makers of Black and Poly (Ron Young and Crystal Farmer), sometimes I think poly is (or comes across as) white-centric and it was just nice that this program took that step to mitigate that issue. That's how I feel about it anyway. Obviously Janet Hardy and Elizabeth Sheff were also good choices, and it's encouraging that they were willing and able to appear on the show.

I do agree with this sentiment - would have been nice if they had broken it into two shows - a general presentation with Hardy and Sheff, and then another show on Black and Poly.
