Normalizing Non-Monogamy - Interviews in Polyamory and Swinging

Hi! We're Emma and Fin! We're a married couple in our early thirties who have been exploring non-monogamy for over a decade. Every week we interview people from across the spectrums of gender, sexuality, and relationship styles to hear their amazing stories. Many of our guests identify as swingers or polyamorous. However, quite a few have redefined non-monogamy in their own way by blending swinging and polyamory into a unique hybrid that works for them. We hope that by giving a voice to the diverse community exploring non-monogamy that we can show people they are not alone and inspire them to embrace their true selves so that, together, we can open minds and live authentically without shame.We hope you enjoy the show and who knows, maybe someday you'll even be willing to share your own story. We'd love to hear it!
