Pedestrian Polyamory is back, and we've brought friends. Gavin and Shira explain the lack of updates to the show, and almost promise to make that not happen anymore. Once we catch up with the Master Banters (trademark pending), Shira and The Transient (#boom) takes us on an interview with a real-life polyamorous quad. They explain how it works for them, and how they handle things when it doesn't work for them. This is a fun episode that features more humans than any other episode of Pedestrian Polyamory ever (weird thing to promote)!! So give it a listen, don't break hearts, and don't make expletives weird.

When the Swingers are away the Katz will play! Shira B. Katz has taken over the Swingset, and has enlisted her husband of mythical proportions Gavin Katz.  The hosts of Pedestrian Polyamory (cheap plug) aren’t necessarily talking about Polyamory this week, but their ventures into a Swinger party.  Comparisons are made between the two cultures, Shira [...]

Gavin and Shira are back again, after a long spell of not being able to share the same room let alone the same microphone they're back... with a vengeance! Gavin finally lets the Pedestrians know, exactly how did that date go? Shira talks about the personal issues that have been going on in the Katz house, as well as a preview to next weeks Depresissode. Then they once again open up the listener mail bag, and discuss the polyamorous issues of the Pedestri-nation. This episode has a wide range of issues discussed, both for the newly open as well as issues for those with a Black Belt in Polyamory (why the belt gotta be black??).

The Transient joins Shira B. Katz in this episode of Pedestrian Polyamory so that she can ramble about pheromones for an hour. (Gavin calls this making the New Kid pay his dues.) After the usual Pedestrian Affairs, Shira is off an talking about Pheromones. Do they exist in humans? What kind of pheromones are out there? Just what is a vomeronasal organ? Join Shira and The Transient as they enjoy a big bowl of I*e C***m and get nerdy.

It's Shira's turn to go solo on Pedestrian Polyamory. Shira is back from Burning Man and won't shut up about it, even though she promised to! Hear Shira talk about her transformation between her first burn and her second and why Burning Man is responsible for Pedestrian Polyamory being a show at all. Shira also talks about.. Burning Man! And hypothetical druggy situat-i-ons, orgy domes, Tu-Tu Rapey Tuesday, and commitment ceremonies. Then she talks about... Shira! Hear about why Shira feels like a weirdo, all about her relationships, and listen to her answer a few listener questions while she's at it.

Pedestrian Polyamory is back, but this time with a twist. Shira is off to Burning Man leaving Gavin alone to speak on whatever his heart desires.

The Katz' also dive into their personal lives a bit, Shira's dating a bunch, Gavin's not dating at all... yeah, yeah, I know. You're sick of reading it, I'm sick of writing it, you'd think by know they'd be sick of talking about it. Listen to Pedestrian Polyamory 31, now with 50% more Bane.

Gavin is taking the reigns once again, and this time he is putting Shira through her worst nightmare: conversations about Jealousy. Before they get into the topic, Gavin and Shira ONCE AGAIN try to make their voice clear on the topic of privilege (last time, I swear... probably... maybe). Gavin then leads us through the topic of jealousy, what it is, what it means, how to deal, and the best cleaning solutions to get the shit off your floor. Shira meanwhile kicks and pouts as she usually does when things get Postulant, but she does it in her usual adorable sassy way. Will Gavin be able to steer this ship? Will Shira call a mutiny and take over half way through the show? Listen and find out? I mean, listen and find out!

Shira B goes to the San Francisco Pride Parade and regales you with tales of terror in the streets of San Francisco. Pissing, shitting, and domestic violence, oh my. Then the Katz hit the listener mail bag to give the Pedestrians a differing view on privilege and political correctness. Other topics include: more Gavins, disclosing polyamory to casual lovers, and newbie pitfalls in opening up long term relationships. Listen to some uncensored Katz commentary. (Unless they're talking about I#@ Cr*!m.) <3

Hot off the heels of OpenSF Gavin and Shira are here to decompress all over you. First Shira reveals the details of her next speaking appearance (*hint* CatalystCon ). Then the Katz' share the highs from the entire conference, but you can't have high high's without some eventual low low's. Shira and Gavin have both been experiencing various degree's of over sensitivity surrounding language. Gavin discuss his feelings on the misuse of the word 'Privileged'. Shira tells a story revolving around the racism of Ninja's (yep... Ninja's). It's not all griping and moaning in the Katz household, because in the end they just want to clarify, 'We are ALL on the same team'. <3

Jun 15, 2012

Not much going on in Shira and Gavin-land, but before they dive into the topic of the day, they do have a warm thank you to all the Berries in the world.  Shira and Gavin this week dive into the world Voyeurism and Exhibitionism, and share their own personal views on the topics.  Our duo [...]

Yea, I realize that looks like this is an episode about the Capital of Idaho… it’s not, not even a little bit. But if I just wrote ‘Bring the Boys’ you would might miss the whole Old School Rap theme that Shira makes us do.  Anyway, in this episode Shira and Gavin (who refers to [...]

May 11, 2012

Gavin and Shira sit down and talk about the ORE, which stands for Old Relationship Energy, and may or may not be something that Shira completely made up.  They also talk about NRE, but more than talking about the energy, they talk about the science and chemicals involved, and what drives humans to act the [...]

GHere we go, here we go, here we go again. Barry, what's my weakness? (Mail!) Ok, then. Chillin', chillin', mindin' my business. I checked my mail and I couldn't believe this. I swear; I stared, Gavin's my witness, the mailbox had it goin' on with somethin' kinda wicked, wicked - I had to click it. I'm not shy so I podcast the business. The mailbox is packed and it's stacked ('specially in the back). D Barry wanted to thank a lover for mail like that. Can S Barry get some love with that shake-shake boobie? If looks could kill, Gavin would be an uzi. He's a shotgun - bang! What's up with that thang? The swingset wants to know; how does it hang? Straight up, wait up, hol... No really, hold on. Gavin is going to kill me. Stick with us on the show as we answer a bunch of listener mail. We hit the mail for the hell of it, just for the yell we get. Mmm, mmm, mmm.. for the smell of it. Shoop. <3

Shira clicks a link from a Barry named Lewis. This Barry's gots problems so she says "Let's do this". Gavin jumped up beside and said "What's up?" Some Barry's queried the Katz, so Gavin knew he's stuck. Gavin's gettin' asked, he can't believe it himself, if all this bullying is good for Shira's health. Shira took his stings, she took his damn hex. Gavin looked at the mail and said "Damn, what's next?" 16 emails in the inbox and only 3 in the show. Gav Dogg is about to turn some Barres down cold. Now the drama' and cryin', it's a tad bit late. Gav Dogg and Shira B had to regulate. Back up back up cause it's on K A T Z and me The Shira to the B <3

With so much drama in PP16, it's kinda hard being a K A T to the Z. But somehow, someway, we gotta keep on answering listener mail like every single day. May we answer a little mail for the B's and make a few jokes as we breeze through two in the morning and the podcast's still goin'. Okay. That was ridiculous. Listen in as Shira and Gavin answer some mail received after Depressisode 16. They cover topics from dating, to depression, to dealing with reluctant partners. <3

In this episode of Pedestrian Polyamory, we talk about the recent media hype surrounding Newt Gingrich and open marriage.
