026: Periods

This week Anna and Maria talk periods! It’s a topic that doesn’t get discussed enough (which is silly, because periods affect half of the population on a very regular basis). Our co-hosts consider why periods aren’t talked about more, discuss their own experiences with periods, what’s so AMAZING about menstruation, and some cool new period products and organizations. Remember: your period is a cycle that regulates your body and lets you know how you’re doing. Get to know your period!

This week's quote:
"At her first bleeding a woman meets her power.
During her bleeding years she practices it.
At menopause she becomes it."
-Traditional Native American saying
