Dr. Sheff appears with poly triad on Australian morning show

The Sydney morning show Sunrise recently did a segment on polyamory and I was able to appear remotely from a studio in Atlanta. The interview flew by, with the hosts asking some fairly decent questions and allowing time for a considered response. You can watch it here https://au.tv.yahoo.com/sunrise/video/watch/22603755/me-my-husband-and-my-lover/
