Are we psychologically ready for all that Raised by Wolves presents?
Play • 51 min

The harrowing vision of the future in which Raised By Wolves takes places forces humanity to grasp with change and tragedy beyond comprehension. But how well does the series depict how human beings would actually react when confronted with staggering concepts like starting life over on a distant planet or facing android superweapons? On the final episode of Raised By Wolves: The Podcast’s first season, host Holly Frey joins psychologist and YouTube star Ali Mattu in considering whether or not humanity is truly up to the task of embracing our future -- or if we'll just crumble under the weight of our own fear and guilt. Raised By Wolves creator Aaron Guzikowski also checks in one last time to explain how he developed the psychological profiles of the show’s characters as they try to prove themselves worthy of being humanity’s last chance for survival.

If you don’t feel compersion, how do you develop the capacity to experience it. * Compersion is the non-sexual joy you feel in seeing joy in others. It’s empathy, and you likely experience it all the time. If you’ve ever been happy for a friend at their wedding or joyful that your kid won their soccer game, you’ve felt compersion. * Start noticing and naming the compersion you feel already. If insecurity or jealousy are blocking you from feeling it in your poly relationships, try some of our jealousy/insecurity exercises, such as Discuss, Distract, Do and And Then What. * Consider compersion a muscle that you can exercise. Practice it mentally. For example, try experiencing feeling empathy/compersion when your metamour wins a video game. 16:12 Join the conversation Join the community on Facebook at or Twitter at @polyweekly or @cunningminx, Instagram at cunning.minx or now on TikTok as @cunningminx. 16:30 Feedback * A listener in Vancouver, Canada calls in to support Lusty Guy’s politics corner * David Wheeler provides an audio review of the Smart Girl’s Guide to Polyamory 19:15 Happy poly moment * S shares a story of her metamour saving their life * R finds strength and courage to pursue polyamory 23:45 Thank you to our subscribers and contributors Thanks to our Poly Weekly Playmates for your financial support!
