The newest episode of DFW is called The Poly Amish Atheist. With a title like that I bet you can guess what Myisha will be discussing with her guest, Kenneth who is kind enough to dive deep into his restrictive religious roots and their impact on his sex life.

Kenneth does such a great job at parsing out what that conflict looked like for him and how that moved him to leave his faith behind.
