In this episode, Erik and I spoke with sex therapist, Tara Galeano, about connecting and intimacy in the time of social distance
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 that 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 hosts Aicila and Erik as they dig into topics ranging from social and political to geeky and fun. Erik and Aicila are looking for the "BiCurean Moment" a point where contradictions meet.
