Essential listening

This excellent podcast brings Black women’s stories of menopause to the centre… stories that all women should listen to. Karen is a gifted interviewer who brings positivity, warmth and all-round good vibes to every show. Essential listening!

Insightful strong black women sharing there truth

This podcast has been a place to sit and listen, and to not feel alone in my menopause journey.
Insightful honest stories that resonates with me on so many levels.
Experiences that I had felt were mine alone are more common then I realised I am so happy to find a place that gets me.
Season 2 Ep 7 Amazing.

Brilliant podcast. Like a warm comforting hug.

I highly recommend Karen’s podcast. Whilst I’m not a black woman I appreciate and connect with a lot of the guests on this podcast. I’ve had peri menopause symptoms for a few years now, and only now am I pushing forward with trying to get doctors help. The podcast really helps to educate in a way that’s not overwhelming in a topic that is, until a year ago, very much hidden. Thank you Karen for providing this much needed service.
