The Crisses

When we were 16 we discovered that we weren't alone in our head. And we decided to live as an intentional family. Since, we've been diagnosed, asked whether we wanted to integrate, embarked on a journey of wrestling with PTSD and triggers, unloaded a boatload of baggage, and decided that we enjoy our shared life. Along the way we've become a holistic practitioner and a life coach.

This podcast covers many issues about being multiple, about living together in harmony, and more. Our goal is helping other systems with internal community.

    001 - Credentials - remastered


    This is a remastered version (2017) of the first podcast for Many Minds on the Issue (2005) for improved sound and editing quality.  We haz mad skillz now.

    In this introductory episode we cover who The Crisses are to some degree, some of the ideas we have for future episodes, the basics on what a multiple is versus an otherkin host (we'll go into the idea of psychological models vs. subjective experiences later), and brush on many topics that we'd like to cover in later episodes.

    The main purpose of this podcast is to lend some credibility so that people will know who I am (we are?). Some people already know who I am (we are?) through our extensive work on, Multiplicity: The Missing Manual (on that website), and our books & self-help materials.

    Trigger warning: this episode contains one curseword.  This episode confronts the idea of being "multiple enough" and whether anyone has the right to challenge for proof.

    Easter Egg: There are some switches during the episode.  Can you spot them?
