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.

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
