Dr. Ian Jenkins | Author of "Three Dads and a Baby" and A Polyamorist Relationship

Meet Ian Jenkins — he’s a doctor, living in San Diego, a specialist in hospital medicine and a professor at a major university. He’s been with his partner, Alan, for 17 years. And they’ve been with their partner, Jeremy, for eight. And they have two biological children — Piper, who is 3, and Parker, who is 14 months. Piper and Parker are half siblings who each needed two women to give them life. And this is just one part of the story.

Ian shares his journey as father, being one of three in a polyamorist relationship, how daily life works, and changing the model of what a typical family may look like. We covered a lot, and I think you will enjoy this fun and educational conversation.
