Dating and disclosure with bipolar disorder.

Episode #393 — May 6, 2014

He grew up conservative and Christian. Now that he's over it, he's dating an awesome lass. But she likes to talk about sex, and he's still shy and giggly about it. A woman and her husband have embarked on a long-distance, open relationship. But that doesn't mean she wants to hear every damn thing about the girls he's yakking with on Chat Roulette. On the Magnum version, Dan speaks with Ellen Forney, creator of the amazing graphic novel "Marbles" about dating and disclosure when you have bipolar disorder. And finally, arguably one of the oddest calls we've ever gotten from a man whose son is caught looking at…well, what he's caught looking at may SHOCK YOU. And so much more. 206-201-2720
