About the Pod

Get to know your Pod Pod Cvlt Cast hosts…

We started calling ourselves “The Pod” or the “Poly Pod” sometime in 2018 and it stuck. We function as a chosen family that lives together. We started a the Pod Pod Cvlt Cast podcast about polyamory and kink life, love, learning, and libido in 2019. We took time in the summer of 2020 to gather our hearts and minds and engage in self care during the on-going pandemic.

Check out our bios below to learn about us as hosts, people, and partners!

Max (maks)

M's avatar by Pickaface.net

Max isn’t here to make friends.

Doer of stuff. Builder of things. Puller of pigtails. Friend to widows and orphans, though mostly to widows. Gleeful pedant. Raconteur. Booze enthusiast. Flirting is the means through which he communicates with the world.

Max is married to Chastain, partners with Hannah.

Hannah (hann-uh)

Hannah is a late-blooming queerdo, still code-switching in fluent fundigelical.

Her past lives include being a nanny, a starving art student, and a software trainer to the elderly.

Teach her something new and she’ll be your best friend. She’s the nice one.

Erik (air-ik)

E's avatar by Pickaface.net

Erik smokes and he knows things… but probably not the same things you know. He is generally culturally unaware. There are many things he has forgotten. He also makes stuff and is 420 friendly.

Cycling. Wood. Meat. These are what little Eriks are made of.

Erik left the Pod and show in 2020, and we wish him well.
