Periods. Period.



Today Katee and Corbin talk one of the most normal and ordinary events that happens in around half of the world’s reproductive age population every month…PERIODS. We talk nuts and bolts, what they are, how they work, dropping the veil if you will. We also talk about period shaming and it’s implications in a global context.

Let us know what you think!

Tweet storms, name calling, and why words matter



The alternative title of this episode is “How to secretly tell if someone is a secret mysoginist by how they talk about women.” But that didn’t fit in the title space!

In this episode Katee and Corbin talk about the beloved JK Rowling’s tweet storm about how we criticize/ talk about women in the public sphere. What does it mean when we equate synonyms of the female genetalia with weakness? What does it say about society? How do we make change?

We covent your thoughts! Join the conversation!
