The piece finishes a discussion of my second book, and why I hope no one ever needs to read it. Listen here! If you want more than six minutes of Carrie's and my thoughts on marriage, polyamory, narratives of love stories, and more, you can watch an event we hosted together in Seattle this summer. Offbeat Bride & Carrie Jenkins discuss "What Love Is" Ariel Meadow Stallings, publisher of offbeatbride.com, hosts a discussion with philosopher Carrie Jenkins, author of "What Love Is: And What It Could Be." Topics include the why we're so afraid to actually THINK about love, philosophical water weenies, #polyamory vs amatonormativity, and how weddings in the 21st century are totally different (and yet exactly the same). Ariel Author of three editions of the Offbeat Bride book and the forthcoming From Shitshow To Afterglow, Ariel Meadow Stallings acts as the publisher of all the Offbeat Empire websites. She lives in Seattle with her son, and if she's not reading or writing books, chances are good that she's dancing or happy-crying. She writes weekly essays for her new publication, The Afterglow.
