Thank goodness it’s normal

Just recently discovered this podcast and I am so happy to realise it is all normal. It is so informative and hilarious.
The best when I start laughing at my own experience as you discuss it.

Questions

I’m going to give this a few more episodes, but does the host ever give sources for the statistics she rattles off so quickly? A lot of what she delivers as fact is not easily verifiable.

Informative and hilarious!

I love this podcast so much! There is an episode for every time I’ve asked, “What in the world is going on with me?” A side benefit is that I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time because menopause isn’t funny (or so I thought). The con is that I must look ridiculous driving down the interstate crying because I’m laughing so hard! Thank you both for this podcast! I needed it!
