For so many years, Tasha Bishop felt like the odd one out after being diagnosed with MRKH; a condition that meant she was born without a womb or internal vagina.

After coming to the realisation that none of us fit the mould, Tasha set out to change the conversation – instead of herself. We're all odd-ones-out and bodies are multitudinous marvels, after all.

In this person-focused and filter-free podcast, Tasha interviews a different guest each week, listening to their corporeal stories and exploring the rainbow of bodies that make up this world. Body Language will uncover the way we talk about our bodies, feel about our bodies, and so often hide them. This is a journey to understanding how we can come to value our imperfections in a society set on perfection.
