The Ready For Polyamory Podcast

Ready for Polyamory? Education, humor, and personal stories on ethical non-monogamy and polyamory.

About the show

Welcome to the Ready for Polyamory Podast! Your charming host, Laura Boyle, will be talking to members of an ever more illustrious group of guests to present the concepts and nuances of Ethical Non-Monogamy, Polyamory and relationship skills in general. Like many experts, she has both mixed educational background (in English Literature, Sexual Diversity Studies, and Law) and personal experience (13 years at the time of this writing) in the field of ethical non-monogamy, and eight in polyamorous relationships more specifically, and this podcast is for the Big General Concepts that don't fit the nerdy detail of the blog (, as well as those better suited to a debate format. It's an ongoing examination of polyamorous love, strengths, and challenges, as seen by a 30-something relationship and sex educator and coach.
