Hi there, it’s Chastain from the Pod Pod Cvlt Cast. This week we’re talking about representation in the media, how important it is for people in non monogamous relationships who are curious about non monogamous relationships, open relationships, polyamory, swinging, and BDSM, and kink to see that represented in the media in a realistic way, so that it’s accessible to them, and it helps them explain it to other people. So we have a great conversation about that. And we give some examples of recent media and the media that helps shape our relationships. And our lifestyle.
