In this episode, relationship coach and co-host of the Multiamory podcast, Dedeker Winston joins us to discuss her new book, “Multiamory: Essential Tools for Modern Relationships” that she wrote along with co-authors Jase Lindgren and Emily Sotelo Matlack. Dedeker unpacks some fascinating key concepts in her book, like RADAR check ins and the Triforce of Communication, that will be game changers for your relationships. We also get into vulnerabilities as she explains that writing has been emotionally harder for her than nude modeling and why. Then, we shift gears as she elucidates how the combination of being a digital nomad and being non-monogamous has been especially epic for her. Side note: I have to say, her goat story got me incredibly envious. She tells us how jealousy has been her teacher, why she loves relationship anarchy, and finally, why she now endeavors to live a “f*ckless life”. Please join us for this detailed look into the non-monogamous mind of Dedeker Winston as we once again dare to Open Deeply.
Dedeker Winston is an educator, relationship coach, and co-host of the Multiamory podcast, a research-backed relationship advice show that centers on non-traditional relationships.
