Polyamory Weekly

Reviews For Polyamory Weekly

I’ve starting diving into my poly research just a few weeks ago and have already found this cast helpful in my own discussions with my partner. Just by listening to a handful of episodes, I already know of more books, websites and concepts to check out. It helps that minx and co-hosts are easy to listen to, episodes are short, and make the sometimes intimidating and guilt-inducing topic of poly more approachable. I cannot recommend this cast more to anyone trying to figure out how to put their feelings into practice.
I always look forward to new episodes. Minx especially is a wonderful interviewer. Warm yet thorough. I appreciate the diversity of guests. The friendly tone of the podcast makes me feel less alone, and helps make even challenging content easier to digest. I still remember listening to the podcasts about abuse in polyamory while dealing with my own abusive relationship. Thanks for all your work on this podcast over the years Minx & co.
Ugh. Don’t listen to this scummy podcast. The hosts are pretentious and carry a “kinkier-than-thou” air about themselves. In episode 583, LustyGuy refers to someone as “the Harriet Tubman (of polyamory)”. SERIOUSLY?? What kind of ignorant bs is that?? To make matters worse, they spend maybe half of each episode talking about the actual topic. The rest of the time is spent gassing themselves up. This show reeks of narcissism and unchecked white privilege. Poly folx, check out Polyamory Uncensored. The hosts are lovely and don’t place themselves in an echo chamber. :)
Minx, you are amazing. You are the reason I listen to podcasts. You do a wonderful job and I’ve learned so much from you and lusty guy. You are amazing people. Keep up the great work.
I just stumbled on to my first listen with Allena. What a great way to start a podcast. I am new to both the poly and the kink world but feel like I was made for it. I really want to educate myself on everything (it just my personality). This podcast is great! you all are so funny and knowledgeable it makes learning and listening fun. Thank you all and keep doing what you’re doing. We appreciate you. P.S I keep sending episodes to my partner. He will love this too. Much love to you!
Polyamory Weekly has been a great resource since I first talked about opening up my mono relationship nearly five years ago. Thank you so much!
These podcasts offer great relationship advice even for us monogamists. Minx and her co-hosts are always right on the money and consistently offer creative and valuable strategies for maintaining and improving your love relationship(s). Thank you
I absolutely love this podcast, highly recommended!
Minx chooses interesting guests, establishes a good rapport with people, and walks her talk when it comes to treating people of all sexualities and lifestyles with respect. Her topics are informative and realistic. She researches and doesn't just talk off the cuff, or spend too much time blathering on about mere opinions. If you're new to polyamory, experienced, or wondering about it, Polyamory Weekly is a great resource for you.
I have been listening for years now, and I’ve listened to every episode. Minx is such a lovely person- and so nice to listen to. Like a friend. I am so thankful for this podcast- Minx covers anything and everything having to do with poly and relationships in general. I recommend this podcast to all of my friends, poly or mono. Thank you Minx! <3
A smart and energetic podcast that dares to explore taboo territory and thereby encourage more honest expression in our world. Loved the episode with Chris Smith (#528). Made me think about close nontraditional connections made stronger by courageous vulnerability could help many of us collaborate through the next recession.
This is a great, quick weekly podcast to cover the things those who are new to polyamory will need to know. Very accessible and friendly. My only complaint is I wish the episodes weren't so short. But the hosts are wonderful and welcoming, the guests are knowledgeable, and the topics are still fresh after all the time they've been on the "air".
For anyone who has relationships with other people. There are so many good lessons for romantic relationships, but learning to communicate well can improve your connection with everyone in your life! I love Minx's smart and open-hearted approach to hosting the show.
The show has so much potential since it has some really good content (on the three episodes I listened to), but I was turned off by the host, Minx, who seemed to have a chip on her shoulder on certain topics, who regularly interrupted and audibly made uncomfortable her guests, particularly on the asexuality episode. Tried to give it a couple more shots, but found the same issue: I find her off-putting. Much prefer the Multiamory podcast.
Just came across this podcast a week ago and have scrolled and download several episodes thus far. Once you get pass the Moviefone guy voice intro, cheesy subject dividing music and sometimes awkward long pauses, and low recorded volume. Minx does provide plenty of information about polyamory and for a beginners such as myself it can be very helpful.
Thanks for all your honesty and hard work!
Ive learned so much from ths podcast as a person who seeks to identify poly with caution. Im learing more and more as the weeks go on with a seemingly unlimited database of episodes to surf through while I wait for another heard hitting topic!Thanks Minx and Lusty Guy for youre dedication to helping us all find our way in a safe manner!
...I can always turn this podcast on and hear a brighter side to rejection, awkward interactions, or even how to bes communicate how I feel before it all comes crashing down around me. This podcast had taught me to open up for the sake of ME and not to be ruked by stigmas and false lables. Owning your Happiness is the message, how to get there and stay there is the practice that Lusty Guy, Cunning Minx and all the wonderful guests on the show aim to equip you with. I reccomend this to any of my friends in non monogomous or otherwise because it realy does show you how to confidently act on the next step! Thanks for all your wonderful insights and stories! YOU SHOULD LISTEN TOO 100%!!
I love the podcast. I always learn something new that has me thinking for days. Additionally Minx has the most soothing voice. Always enjoy hearing you speak.
Minx does a great job answering all types of questions that people new to poly may have, as well as having a great and wide range of guests to weigh in with their own poly experiences. Also absolutely recommended if you're like me and just starting to navigate poly in your own life. Thanks Minx, you've got another lifelong listener! :)
Thank you Minx, Lusty Guy, Koe, Kitten and everyone who helps make this wonderful podcast. I learn something new in every podcast to help me communicate better and reinforce all my good feels about polyamory. 🐱🐱🐱
This show has been one of my best resources for navigating poly life. I always find myself going and reviewing old episodes when I need an answer to something I'm dealing with. There's something for everyone to learn about relationships, even if you aren't poly
Regardless of the structure or the rules of your relationship(s), or your orientation, Minx and her guests provide great ideas for making relationships better. Some of their advice comes from hard-won experience. Some advice takes what should be the obvious guidelines of all relationships, then shows multiple ways to put them into practice. They never present themselves as all-knowing experts, but as people who’ve done a lot of living, loving, and learning --and are willing to share.
I came for the "the hell is this??" factor, and stayed for the rediculous amount of insights into my own spyche Minx gives out like candy. I can clearly trace new comforts and confidence back to this entertaining and informative podcast.
I love this podcast. It has provided so much information about polyamorous relationships. Well done.
So, I'm not sure what to write here. I've been listening most weeks for maybe a year now, and listened to a lot of older episodes too. My live-in boyfriend and myself have developed a habit of listening while we fold laundry together. There's a lot of insight, it brings up a lot of questions, and as someone who's relatively new to poly and hasn't really settled into a real-life community to ask questions to, it's a really powerful resource. Also, just fun to listen to. Minx is great about bringing in guest speakers to talk about different subjects, she cheerfully promotes what other people do, and it's just a really beautiful thing. And she keeps pointing out that writing a review here is something that can help the podcast. So, here it is Minx, keep up the good work.
I appreciate how Minx brings her personal experience and mistakes to the table- it definitely makes the podcast more connective. One of my favorite episodes was where she brought her metamour on and talked about their relationships in particular. Thanks for the podcast, Minx!
I go through phases where I listen to this podcasts weekly and then discuss its contents with friends. It offers invaluable advice and perspective for people working through relationship-related conundrums of all types. I must admit that I'm most interested in the more experienced guests, especially from older queer folks.
I have listened to the entire archive of Poly Weekly and I cannot express my immense gratitude for the time and energy Minx and her cohosts have put into this show. When helping out a friend exploring polymory my list of favorite shows is the first place I point them. Informitive and to the point the show does a great job of valuing my time by giving me the information I need in a fun and informative way without devolving into non-relevant side chat. As someone who engages in poly educating I love coming back to the podcast to refresh my take and engage with different circumstances that can affect our poly lives. Scritches to the Minx, thanks for all you do!
I don't give 5-star reviews; I just don't. Perfection is almost impossible to achieve, and I believe reviews should reflect that. (Alas, too many online reviews are either raves or pans—it's unfortunately unavoidable.) Think of the Baseball Hall of Fame; lots of great players don't get in. It's not just the occasional good podcast; it's excellence, demonstrated consistently, for a substantial period of time. This is a 5-star podcast. The host, Cunning Minx, has been doing this 'cast for years. Not only is she personally an engaging and intelligent host; she learns over time, solicits other opinions, listens to her listeners, engages with her community, and accepts other opinions thoughtfully and respectfully. And she has a great "radio voice". Everything you could want in a host. Minx's output has been consistent for years. She misses a week now and then, but unlike many, many other podcasts has maintained a regular schedule for years. It's an almost unmatched record. But finally, this 'cast not only contains excellent information for polyamorous relationships, but the advice and thoughts presented—about communication, honestly, and mutual respect—can apply to anyone. You could be in a 20+ year-long monogamous relationship with expectations of never straying, and you'd still hear good stuff from Minx, LustyGuy, Koe, and the other folks Minx has had on. That's what makes a great podcast. And that's why you should download this podcast and give it a listen.
Polyamory Weekly is an EXCELLENT resource for anyone who is curious about all things poly. Thank you, Minx & Lusty Guy for your amazing contribution to knowledge and growth! 😍
What a wonderful podcast full of information and humor and understanding! And so thorough and timely. Thank you!!
Love this podcast! Great information about a topic that I'm very interested in. I'm not poly (yet). You could say I'm doing my research first. I heart Minx and all the topics she brings to the table. Love this podcast!
It's great to hear an open mind that is entertaining and informative at the same time!
I have 8 years to catch up on! Thank you for having all the podcasts available!! I started with the last cpl weeks but decided to go back from the beginning to end.. Don't worry I will catch up fast and it's great I can close the app and still listen!! I can play my games and chat all while listening! You are an amazing speaker! And I love your insight!
My wife and I decided to open up our marriage a couple months ago. I've found the information from Minx to be very useful. In fact, I'm on OkCupid now thanks to a recent episode and having a lot of fun with it!
This podcast is one of the best resources on communication and relationships on the web. Minx is an engaging host and interviewer. Whatever your relationship choice, there are resources available to help with just about any scenario or issue one could imagine experiencing.
Polyamory is a fear of intimacy, probably its practitioners were hurt deeply at some point that opened this path as a way to avoid the feared pain of trying to connect with one person. I wish you all the best but don't be fooled that this path is pain free.
Minx is just herself. She's got some GREAT guests and has worked VERY hard to grow as a podcaster and keep her show growing and stretching. She was the first. She'll always be the pioneer. Kudos. Keep it going girl.
This podcast is an absolute must if you are non-monogamous. There is a rich amount of relationship advice, tools for communication, info on media surrounding poly, fantastic interviews with leaders in the sexual positivity movement. The BEST podcast regarding negotiating non-monogamy as a poly person.
