The way Van talks about poly life is ignorant. You are misinformed and sound insensitive with your jokes.. I don't know... There's room for "learning" about a lifestyle YOU don't understand. Cheers tho. Love the pod.

This interview is so difficult to sit through while this man keeps telling me how I should feel about new information that comes forward. There's still no excess for that Karen weaponizing the color of someone's skin against them.
