We’re replaying the Best of Heavy Flow while we’re on hiatus over the summer! Subscribe to Heavy Flow on your favourite podcast player and sign-up for my weekly newsletter to get new episodes when we’re back in the fall. 

Today on the show Kathleen Shannon, co-founder of Braid Creative and Being Boss Podcast co-host, takes the reigns to interview me about my new book, Heavy Flow: Breaking the Curse of Menstruation. We talk about my early interest in periods, how period shame shows up in our culture, where menstrual equity intersects with other social justice issues, hormonal birth control, body literacy, where period pain comes from and what we can do about it, and so much more.

This episode of Heavy Flow is supported by Hormonology.

Menstruation Research Network is a UK-based interdisciplinary network aiming to bring together menstruation experts from inside and outside academia.
