Venus joins Dan Savage on the Savage Lovecast

I was beyond flattered and thrilled to get an invitation to join Dan Savage as a guest on the Savage Lovecast Podcast.

Here’s the link! https://www.savagelovecast.com/episodes/722#.X0XQA8hKiM8 Just a head’s up that guest appear on the “Magnum” versions of episodes and not the shorter ones.

I’ve been a Dan Savage fan for over a decade and it’s because of his hugely popular column Savage Love, that I first learned about non-monogamy, and that was what led me down the road to where I am today. Obviously I’m hugely grateful for his influence on my life!

Here’s a little bit about Dan, taken from his website www.savagelovecast.com:

Dan Savage is an author, a sex-advice columnist, a podcaster, a pundit, and a public speaker.

“Savage Love,” Dan’s sex-advice column, first appeared in the The Stranger, Seattle’s alternative weekly, in 1991. The column is now syndicated to more than 50 papers across the United States and Canada.

Dan has published six books. His newest book, American Savage, will be published in May of 2013. In 2010 Dan and his husband Terry Miller founded the It Gets Better Project. The IGBP has gathered tens of thousands of videos from people all over the world offering hope to LGBT kids. The book—It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living—was a New York Times best seller. In 2012 the It Gets Better Project was awarded an Emmy.

Dan is a regular contributor to public radio’s This American Life. He is a also a frequent guest on The Colbert Report, Real Time with Bill Maher, and other television programs. In the fall of 2011 MTV filmed Dan as he toured colleges performing “Savage Love Live,” the live version of his sex-advice column. That tour became the basis for the 2012 MTV program “Savage U.”

In 2006 Dan launched the Savage Lovecast, a weekly, call-in advice podcast. It is now one of iTunes top 50 podcasts. Dan’s graphic, pragmatic, and humorous advice has changed the cultural conversation about monogamy, gay rights, religiosity, and politics. Dan lives in Seattle with his husband, their son, and a one-eyed, deaf poodle named Stinker.

This is one of my favourite Dan Savage videos. If you haven’t already watched it – you absolutely must! It’s brilliant and hilarious!
