Hello, Loving Without Boundaries (LWB) community! My heart goes out to you during these challenging times. I hope you are doing your best to keep safe. Sharing inspirational stories of hope, inclusion, and healthy lifestyles are more important than ever. If you are looking for ways to connect with loved ones you are separated from, check out this blog post that I shared recently. On to another inspiring story…
I am so happy to share my latest podcast interview that I released recently with Rosie Wilby. Rosie was another referral by my friend and colleague Kathy Labriola, which I greatly appreciated. (Thank you again, Kathy! You so rock!) I really enjoyed getting to know Rosie and learning about her story first as a musician – a background in which we both have in common – and then later as a comedian, and now also as a podcast host and author. Such a fascinating journey and life Rosie has created for herself! I’m mad impressed! I was surprised to see how much we have in common, as I have performed in rock cover bands for over 18 years, and I also tried my hand at an Improv class years ago — which was terrifying I might add! It takes guts and courage to perform comedy baring your soul in front of a live audience. Rosie! I whole-heartedly loved meeting you! You are fantastic and such an inspiration! Thank you for your fine work and contributions to our community, giving hope and hilarity to so many!
Here is her bio:
Rosie Wilby is an award-winning comedian, author, podcaster and activist from the U.K. Through her books “Is Monogamy Dead?” and “The Breakup Monologues: The Unexpected Joy of Heartbreak”, she’s trying to spread awareness of more conscious ways of connecting and disconnecting whether we are mono, poly or somewhere in between.
Some topics we discuss in this fun, informative, and entertaining interview:
- Why she became a comedian after a career as a musician and music journalist.
- How painful breakups as a serial monogamist led her to investigate ethical non-monogamy.
- Why she believes that polyamory offers a different value system and culture in which to think about relationships and breakups.
- What it was like to come out as a lesbian in the homophobic era of the late 1980s.
- How performing comedy at a play party provided her with a framework of accountability, rules, and boundaries for all of her future relationships.
- Her participation in sexual research studies as part of her own scientific exploration.
- Why she initially thought that non-monogamy was the antidote to breakups.
- How comedy is an art form in which you learn from your failures.
- Tune in to listen to this fantastic and fascinating podcast episode!
