    69 - Fun with Fibroids and Andrea Coleman

    Fibroids - ever heard of 'em? We host a pod about periods and are barely familiar, yet 1 in 3 bleeders will develop them in their life! We got on the horn with lawyer by day, writer and comedian by night Andrea Coleman to discuss her experience with fibroids, heavy periods, and laughing at our ridiculous bodies (her one-woman comedy show The Fibroid Chronicles ran off broadway, okaaaay). So slip on an adult diaper, lay on down and listen!

    Surprise Spotting!: Bleeding at the Pool

    Surprise Spotting!: Bleeding at the Pool

    You know when your period has been over for three days so you rock your fave pair of undies and then BOOM - rando mini-period? Yeah, this episode is kind of like that but also not at all. We had some extra goodness we couldn't squeeze into our first ep, and thought you might enjoy a blonus episode about periods at the pool on this warm, long weekend. Soak in the last socially distant days of summer while your tampon soaks up all that chlorine. Enjoy!

Julia and Frida ,

Bleedamazing!!!

In my household period has always been an absolute no-no. My father was so grossed out by it that he didn’t want to acknowledge its existence (even though he has two daughters) and he wanted us to do the same. I cannot explain how much this podcast means to me, the first time I listened to it I was so shocked to hear people talking about all things menstruations so openly and without skipping on details!! So truly, thank you so much for making this podcast.

Bleedin brilliant!

So refreshing to listen to a podcast that talks about something that happens to women so regularly and people tend to shy away from chatting about. I'm learning so much about periods as well, I didn't realise how much I didn't know about them! Loving the comraderie between the three fun hosts as well, keep them flowing!
