In this episode, Erik and I spoke with sex therapist, Tara Galeano, about connecting and intimacy in the time of social distance

Show Notes

Galeano had dreams of becoming an educator as a child— literally dreams.  She would explain the etymology of the English language and teach Shakespeare, before she'd even read his work.

After graduating from college, she taught Beowulf and Macbeth to adult education students working on their high school diplomas. They were grandmas who wanted to proudly tell their grandchildren that they too had completed their high school education. Teens who needed to work during the day to support their families. Girls who were pregnant and waiting to give birth. She found that the content of the classes got in the way of her knowing these hardworking folks. So she gave up Macbeth and started focusing on the conversations. Eagerly, she learned more about her students, heard their stories, taught less, and listened more.

Galeano joined us to share stories of life in Coronavirus and how people are connecting in this time of social distance.

What is BiCurean?

BiCurean takes typically combative topics and teaches them to play nice. Our view is the mainstream reactionary rhetoric divides us and only helps those invested in the status quo. We seek to find answers beyond the most obvious.

Join host Aicila as she digs into topics ranging from social and political to geeky and fun. Aicila is looking for the "BiCurean Moment"- the point where contradictions meet or are embraced.

BiCurean was conceived of in 2011 by Aicila as a podcast and originally created as a blog. On hiatus since 2021, she's been eager to start back up, and 2024 will be the year she does. Watch for new episodes, a new format, and just her as the host. for more info
