On our Radically (a)Parent podcast we discuss the experiences of parenthood that are often overlooked or less explored out in the open. When our stories are heard, and we understand the stories of others, we all feel more connected and less alone. Let's bring these lesser acknowledged experiences into the light for greater awareness.

Join host Stacey Lindgren for a conversation with Michael and Rigel, who are non-traditional parents in a number of ways. Topics covered include discussions of polyamory (multiple loving and romantic relationships), sex positive culture, atheism, stay-at-home fathers and living authentically to one's self.  

Michael says:

"All those things that are non-traditional are just me trying to be the most radical person I can be. What I am attempting to be is a human being who is living my life as authentically and creatively as possible. That means that I question a lot of the assumptions. It's part of the grand human experiment to create a new human being."

 

 

During our conversation, we touch on the following ideas, organizations and movements:

Burning Man - The Burning Man event and its affiliated communities are guided by ten principles. Because of the variety of goals fostered by participatory attendees, known as "Burners", Burning Man does not have a single focus. Features of the event are subject to the participants and include community, artwork, absurdity, decommodification and revelry. 

Sex-positive movement - Having or promoting an open, tolerant, or progressive attitude towards sex and sexuality.

Polyamory - The philosophy or state of being in love or romantically involved with more than one person at the same time.
