#NewYear, New Intentions: Finding Your Voice w/ @megashleywrites — #KatieSpeakShow Ep118 1/13/2018

In brief: In this show, my good friend Megan Ashley stops by to send off 2017 and welcome in 2018 with some talk about reinventing oneself in an era with particular challenges and benefits. (Less to lose when everything’s a mess anyway, right?) We talk trauma and pleasure, polyamory and a compulsory monogamy driven by a capitalist, individualistic culture. Caution for those with violence triggers as we do discuss her mother’s murder and the sexual assaults in our histories.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you're able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at PAYPAL.me/KatieSpeak. Thank you!
