102: Is Monogamy Overrated?

Season 5, Ep. 102

Testing, testing, one two three. Is this thing on? This week we’re hearing your opinions on monogamy, and all I can say is - the people are divided, but luckily we’ve got comedian Rosie Wilby on the phone with some very funny pearls of wisdom from her book 'Is Monogamy Dead’. Plus we get inspired by Culture Club, give advice for coming out to Grandma and hear some important news from Amnesty International.
