Friends with Exes
In this episode, we hear from three unique perspectives on "friends with exes". First, a group of queer women describe how they make friendship work after a devastating break up; second, a seemingly straight couples break up after 10 years, only to forge a friendship that turns into an exciting creative collaboration, and third, an artist describes her creative work documenting ex partners who are 'not friends' in a photography series.
Emily tells us a story about bumping into her ex at a wedding.
Rachael Kowaleski narrates her story about how she turned a devastating breakup into a close friendship with her ex, Emma. She, Emma and Rachel’s current girlfriend Courtney process in an especially candid conversation. This story about being friends with your ex is also a Canadian coming out story, complete with accents.
After a ten year long relationship, Dani makes a startling confession with unexpected results. They explain the conditions in which they become friends and eventually form their electro-pop music project, TeamMate. Host Erin McGregor talks to Dani Buncher and Scott Simons about going beyond friendship.
Host Erin McGregor interviews Michele Pearson Clarke, a Trinidadian queer artist based in Toronto, Canada. Michelle documents queer ex-partners holding hands with their exes after coaching them back into friendship in this thought provoking service to the gay community.
