From the heart
It is nice to hear a podcast that is comprised of a man and a woman that are clearly speaking from the heart.
Skeptic Poly, Yay!
As an atheist, I am so glad to see that there is a podcast for poly that, while appreciating and loving pagans and a lot of the alternative spiritualities that seem to be commonly associated with poly, approaches poly without all of that. Shira and Gavin are human, chuckly, nerdy, warm and fantastic people who talk about whatever comes up in ways that one can take in without needing to translate "WooWoo" into anything else. Thank you!
My new favorite podcast
I came upon Pedestrian Polyamory when looking for a general discussion of the poly lifestyle. As the intro states, every other podcast that came up was full of spiritual and pagan themes that are at best correlated, but not necessary, to the idea and practice of polyamory. When I heard the lead into this podcast, I knew I had found what I was looking for: a rational, down to earth, and experienced perspective on polyamory.
With the focus of the podcast on target, what really pulls the podcast together is the hosts. Shira and Gavin are natural podcasters. I am almost through the full set of episodes, and the continuous banter from an obviously happy couple make every minute enjoyable. An on going narrative from a polyamorous but otherwise relatively normal family can do nothing but good in the effort to bring polyamory more into the mainstream.
Keep up the good work!
