Podcast Description:

Natasha Helfer  interviews Emma Daley and Adam “Fuzzy” Konner, founders of “Consent Beyond Yes” in regards to a “collaborative approach” to consent that differs from our typical ways of thinking about this concept. Applicable for those who are in long-term relationships/marriage, those who are dating in adulthood and for anyone teaching teens about consent!

She began developing Consent Beyond Yes with Fuzzy while pursuing her Master’s degree in Naropa University.
