    Rethink Menopause with Omisade Burney-Scott of the Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause

    Rethink Menopause with Omisade Burney-Scott of the Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause

    Rethink menopause with Omisade Burney-Scott, the creator of the Black Girl’s Guide to Surviving Menopause, a multimedia project seeking to curate and share the stories and realities of Black women and nonbinary people navigating menopause. We explore aging, intimacy, body change, pleasure, love, spirituality, and the liminality of menopause. We get into the ongoing fight for bodily autonomy, the importance of listening beyond our echo chambers, how to ground ourselves during the swirl of change, and why transformation is not linear.

So Relevant!

A Certain Age podcast is so relevant to the challenges and joys of this season of life. I just listened to the episode on caregiving during my drive to my mom’s as I am caring for her. The speaker was so insightful and I learned in 30 minutes useful information to help my mom and my family during this time - plus was encouraged in the midst of a stressful time. The questions were straightforward and timely. Thank you for this episode and others that have been helpful as well. Looking forward to more!

I’ve learned SO MUCH!

This show covers such pertinent topics. I have learned so much about what is going on in my body during these menopause years and I’ve had quite a few positive outcomes from changes I have incorporated. Katie Fogarty has a fun personality and isn’t afraid to ask the questions we need the answers to. Plus, I feel like she is s trusted, longtime friend. Thanks Katie for all you do for us!
