Public Service Announcement | Stop & Repair Clause (ad free)
This short podcast is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for our community. It's inspired by a conversation Marty has had with a member of another polycule that is very close to ours.  This is about a clause in Megan & Marty's relationship agreement that has helped them successfully navigate opening their relationship. It now includes Kyle and Marty's partner as they have grown to a loving polycule and metamors are included. It's about what to do when one or more member of your relationship(s) is going through a crisis of the heart, or fear, or trauma, or anything that requires you all to remove the noise of too many variables hitting at once. It's about getting to the core of the issue. It's about owning your own shit, and being a support for one another's growth. It's not about being fair all the time. It's about being the best versions of ourselves. It's about leading life with love. It's what Amory is all about.  This episode is dedicated to those of you who need a little extra love right now. There are no ads. There are no calls to action. This is simply for us to be a source of love and support to our community. We love this community and have been given so much love and support it is our honor to have you listening.  Love,  Megan, Marty, Kyle, and one more :)

Amory 16 | Afraid to Communicate Your Needs and Wants?
No matter what your current relationship structure, having the courage to bring up a conversation around needs/wants can be scary, let alone admitting them to ourselves. In this episode of Amory we discuss these questions: Why are we afraid of discussing our needs and wants? What if your partner doesn’t know what they need or want? Why is it important to create a safe space for yourself and your partner(s)? And, how do you do it? Why is it important to time to reflect on our own needs? How do good intentions become a crutch? How have Megan and Marty used MDMA as a therapy tool? At the end of the episode, we walk the walk- making real time requests of each other around our current needs.

Amory 15 | Thriving Through "Solo Time"
Part of being polyamorous is experiencing your own solo time when your partner(s) are with their Other Significant Others (OSO's). In this episode, Megan talks about how she grew through the "solo time" over the last two years...while at the recording of this episode both Marty and Kyle are with their other partners, continents away. Learn how to get through moments of jealousy, overcome the fear of ending up alone, how to create healthy agreements during the opening process, and most importantly, how to become your own best partner!   Support Amory Podcast on Patreon: http://bit.ly/2nMOAWl Follow us Instagram!

Amory 7 | Almost the End of a Marriage & a Promise to Recommit
In this episode Megan comes clean to the listeners in a conversation with Marty about how she nearly sabotaged their marriage. This was a really hard episode for Megan to record. She will reveal her patterns of denial, some atrocious behavior, and what she's working on right now to make her relationship with Marty (and others) stronger.  Marty's part is to tell the story of his experience in the breakdown, and what led him to present Megan with "change the behavior or expect divorce." It was a hard couple of weeks leading up to this chat.  Megan and Marty will give some advice from each of their perspectives, and discuss how having an open marriage with their tribe of support is a big part in what saved them from total disaster in their marriage. Megan will go into detail about her patterns and what she's doing to undo those patterns. Marty discusses who you must be for your partner to support change even when you are still in a grieving process and your gut reaction is to retaliate.  The conversation ends with a set of commitments for now and into the future.  Follow Amory on Instagram!

Amory 1 | Where do we start?
Two years ago, there is no way I would have guessed I was going to host a podcast on these subjects...so how did I get here?   My husband and I have been married 15 years, have twin 4 year olds, and finally feel like we are living life beyond default. I started dating Kyle about a year and a half ago. Everything was open and consensual, although none of us knew exactly what we were getting ourselves into. Since then, we've started to let go of the old paradigms of life that no longer serve us, and are now living a life definitely on the edge of social norms. Ok, really, we're definitely outside of the "norm" but for some reason it feels really comfortable out here.  Listen to the episode to learn more about the journey into the world of polyamory, and just love in general.  Our friend describes the podcast as a "Love University" and we like that idea:)   Books Referenced in the podcast:  - More Than Two by Franklin Veaux  - The Ethical Slut by Janet W.
