Join "Dark Angel" and "KnotNice" each week, for in-depth discussions, opinions, interviews, and threads on an extremely broad range of topics.

You are warned that the topics are not recommended for those under 18, or those who live in an area that does not allow alternative lifestyle relationships (really, you should just move).

Podcasts we listen to & recommend


Our very good friends Dan and dawn - they bring some AMAZING BDSM education to us all.
Our good friend d Graydancer - an amazing man, and an awesome podcast with a very wide range of topics.
Zac, Eric, and the quiet one - are not kinky, but they are just plain hilarious - one of DA's vanilla favs.
Owen and Joni are a kinky couple who are friends of DA's - they started a new podcast mostly about what is happening in their lives at the moment - usually a new show is added monthly. Owen & Joni live the "Taken in Hand" style of relationship, and it peeks out during their show.
