Episode 7: Therapy! And, Some Other Stuff?
2021 Apr 0956m 59s
Hey lovelies!  Thank you all for rolling with our week delay so we could all get the covid vaccine, recover, and take a short vacation. (Also sorry, Thursday did not happen in our house, so happy Friday!) I am so excited for y'all to listen to this episode about therapy, giving feedback, and some weird fun questions we decided to ask each other during our intermission.

The One Where We Quarantined
2021 Jan 2143m 40s
Thank you all for your patience while we dealt with our Covid scare! For this week, we decided to document our experience quarantining from each other in a special episode. Sage was in an isolation hotel, Fox was in Maine on an unintentionally prolonged visit to their parents, all while Sun and Iris had to figure out how to isolate from each other in our home. Thankfully we have all tested negative, went through a full two week quarantine, and are back home together now! As a note, we recorded this episode before the events of January 6th, which is why they aren't addressed. Stick around till the end of the episode to hear the very exciting way Sun and Sage kicked off the new year (Spoiler Alert: there may be a ring involved!)If you loved this episode, please subscribe, tell your friends, and leave a comment!

2: How to Not Hate Everyone You Live With
2020 Dec 3156m 27s
This episode we discuss living with other people, creating boundaries, and answer a listener question about jealousy!

The Story of Us: Sneak Peek Episode
2020 Oct 1524m 58s
Our closed polycule of four (the Quaple) is launching a podcast: And They Were Roommates! Our podcast is about modern love, life, and everything in between. Don’t worry, our advice isn’t just for polyamorous people. We are four 20-somethings with very different lived experiences and we think our (potentially dubious) advice could be helpful for anyone!
