The media is buzzing about Caitlyn Jenner, bringing much more visibility and public discussion to transgender issues.  We at Multiamory.com have some transgender friends, but none of us really had any personal insight into what its like to be transgender in the 21st century.  Fortunately, gender therapist Dara Hoffman-Fox came to the rescue!  

Dara is a therapist based in Colorado Springs who specializes in transgender clients, and she was kind enough to come on the podcast to answer all of our questions!   You can find more information about her services and her new book series on gender identity at her website, darahoffmanfox.com

We are very excited to interview Franklin Veaux and Eve Rickert, founders of the More Than Two blog, and co-authors of the book More Than Two: A Practical Guide to Ethical Polyamory.  Franklin is about to debut his new book, The Game Changer, and we were lucky enough to receive an advance copy of it!

We discuss Franklin and Eve's strategies for managing long-distance relationships, the challenges of writing a memoir, the future of marriage (or marriage alternatives), and Franklin's one piece of advice for healthy, long-lasting, polyamorous relationships.

You can check out Franklin's blog at MoreThanTwo.com, and you can pre-order The Game Changer here

The recent SCOTUS decision in favor of gay marriage has many of us excited and celebrating!  But many people are also asking, "Is plural marriage or polygamy next?" While most conservative journalists and pundits argue that it's a slippery slope to polygamy and other practices straight out of Sodom, the poly community is a mix of opinions.  Some say now is the time to push for plural marriage, but what about concurrent marriage?  Or abolishing special rights for married people altogether?  We discuss all of these and more!

Religion + Polyamory.  Is that an oxymoron? Or can the two coexist?  What happens when you take two controversial topics, throw in three smart-ass podcast hosts, and a bunch of cats?  We answer these questions and more!  We dig in to poly themes found in many different world religions, and we illuminate our own religious/non-religious upbringings!  

We also address listener emails and messages regarding adding a third person to a D/s relationship, as well as introducing the new phrase, "falling in polyamory."

This is your brain.  And this is your brain on drugs.

Not the recreational kind, mind you.  We are talking about pheromones, serotonin, dopamine, and all the other tasty stuff that gets released in your brain when you fall in love (we tend to call it new relationship energy).  We discuss what actually happens when you're in the throes of all of these brain chemicals.  Find out the three stages of falling in love, and also what the heck "limerence" is.  

We also address poly themes in video games and movies.

We are very excited to be interviewing Sarah Mirk, author of the new relationship book Sex from Scratch. A strong voice for feminism, alternative dating, and sex positivity.  Sarah is also the online editor of Bitch magazine and hosts the podcast Popaganda, which examines pop culture through a feminist lens.  Sarah tells us all about feminism, how non-monogamy has shaped her current monogamous relationship, and her one piece of advice for people entering a polyamorous relationship.

You can buy Sex from Scratch here.

We also address some listener emails that cover solo polyamory, as well as the dangers of placing too many restrictions on a relationship. Below you'll find a great comic explaining different relationship styles that came in from one of our listeners. 

Multiamory is also desperate to start handing out swag! If you have a clever idea for a phrase that would go great on a T-shirt, mug, or bumper sticker, let us know! If we pick your idea, we will send you all kinds of free stuff!

Two's company, but three's a crowd?  Not so in polyamory!  Three-person relationships are quite common, and frequently sought after.  We discuss the complexities of triad relationships, and also include advice and things to watch out for if you are a couple seeking a third for your relationship.

We also discuss a conservative editorial piece on the purported damaging effects of being raised in a polyamorous household, in contrast to last week's article on the benefits of growing up with poly parents.

We all have been told over and over again that communication is the key to a good relationship, but how many of us actually know what that means?  The sad fact of the matter is that most of us human beings suck at communication, especially when we let our emotions, personal agendas, or desire to be "right" get in the way.

Though there are hundreds of effective communication strategies, we cover 5 of our favorite techniques to reduce the amount of suck that we bring to each conversation or argument.  In this episode, you'll learn specifically about:

1. Knowing when to H.A.L.T.
2. How to bring emotional honesty to every conversation
3. The 4 basic steps of Non-Violent Communication
4. How reflecting your partner's words can make you a better listener
5.  Finding people other than your partners to talk to when issues or conflict arises

We also discuss the buzz surrounding Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair debut, and a fascinating article written by a young man who was raised in a polyamorous household.  You can check out the article here: http://www.vice.com/read/i-grew-up-in-a-polyamorous-household-528

The partners of your partner, the lovers of your lover, the boyfriend of your girlfriend. The other partner that your partner chooses is known as your "metamour". You didn't get to pick him or her, but keeping up a healthy connection with your metamours is crucial for maintaining harmony and happiness in your poly constellation.  In this episode, we explore the dos and don't of interacting with metamours, what information should be communicated between your partners, as well as what kind of rights your secondary partners might be entitled to.  

We also discuss the importance of exposure to different ideas and belief systems, including those that do not accept polyamory.  

If you're interested in reading Dewayne Lehman's chapter on metamours, you can find it on his website:www.DewayneLehman.com.
