Cheers Sexy People!
I’m thrilled to share my latest podcast interview with you that I recorded with a colleague of mine, Brenda Wiebe. I met Brenda at this year’s first polyamory conference in Boise, Idaho called RelateCon that I detailed in this blog post. Brenda and I were both presenters at this awesome and highly educational as well as fun polyamory conference. Her presentation happened to be the first one that I went to on Friday morning.
Here is the write-up that I did on her presentation that I shared with you earlier on the blog:
Speak Up!! Getting What You Want Out of Your Relationships by Brenda Wiebe – Brenda did an excellent job at this workshop that focused on figuring out and then expressing what you want in a relationship using a hilarious example from her own life. She says “People have not yet achieved the super power of telepathy, yet often expect their partners to somehow know when something is wrong. Learning how to recognize and then vocalize feelings is much harder for some than others, but no relationship can thrive unless all members are upfront with themselves and each other about potential problems.” YES!
Brenda describes herself as a social worker by day, writer by night. Brenda has an MA in sociology from University of Oklahoma and another MA in anthropology from Texas Tech University. Utah is home now where Brenda spends time enjoying a local brew, the people, and scenery.
In this interesting and casual-minded interview we discuss.
— Brenda’s off and on struggle with communication issues, as well as her triumphs.
— The challenges of changing our monogamous minded programming (and how the outcome can be beautiful).
— Her new greatest skill of balancing FRIENDS with her intimate relationships – not “losing” herself in her relationships.
— What Brenda finds rewarding about polyamory.
— Learning the art of asking for what you need (it takes courage, but it also helps everyone not waste their time).
— NOT being on the relationship escalator and how much she enjoys that.
— How Brenda loves podcasts as they have helped her more than anything else.
— Favorite Book: Myth of Monogamy
— Favorite Song: Who Needs Forever by Astrud Gilberto
