About This Show
The Pemaculture podcast is combination of gratuitous self-indulgences: learning from others, connecting people, building bridges, expanding my knowledge, ushering the divine feminine up from the underground, celebrating and exploring the culture of extraordinary women, showcasing their great work in the world, and finding out what makes them badass and fully turned-on, while talking and laughing over coffee, tea, or sacred cacao drinks. I will occasionally feature some great men as well, but for the most part I will focus on women as now is the time their voices are most needed and sought after.

Hormonal Birth Control and Going Beyond Feminism with Holly Grigg-Spall Ep#14
5 days ago
Today on the New Moon in Gemini, I am talking to Holly Grigg-Spall, writer, birth control truther, and author of the book “Sweetening the Pill or How We Got Hooked on Hormonal Birth Control.” We talk about the harmful effects of hormonal birth control, taboos, pheromones, the patriarchy, and feminism. The information that Holly has gathered throughout her personal and professional life is remarkable; she has so much to teach about birth control and countless other women's issues. Holly's book "Sweetening the Pill" got the attention of Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake and she is currently in collaboration with them to release a new documentary about hormonal birth control which will hopefully be out by the end of the year. Can't wait for that! I'm so excited for you all to listen to this and to pick up her book. It is so brilliantly written and informative. Even if you are a proponent of hormonal birth control, the book will enlighten and offer a lot of food for thought way beyond anecdotal evidence. Remember to go to www.pemaculture.com and visit the show notes page to find out more about Holly and see her book and other recommendations. Enjoy the episode and thanks so much for listening!
