Love-XX presents The Periodical; a podcast where our host, Jessie Braun, speaks with people who want to advocate change and stop the global menstruation stigma. Women spend about 8.5 years of their life bleeding and we want to talk about it. We believe there is empowerment in freely and proudly talking about our periods so we want to talk about things like: how is this being represented in pop culture? Why are we hiding tampons up our sleeves as we walk to the bathroom? What new hygiene technologies are being developed? We are sharing period stories that need to be heard. Consider us your monthly gift. This is Love-XX The Periodical.

Basic

You lost me at “irregardless.” This info is very surface and basic. Maybe good for teenagers first starting and seeking some empowerment, but I’m not getting anything new as a woman in my late 20s.

Funny! Informative! And Real💁🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🙏🏾

OMG! I love this podcast. Don't ask me how I found it but I am glad I did😂😂 I love the episode about the tampon getting stuck! And recently the Menustral Cup episode. The struggle is real and I finally got mine figured out and love it. OMG I want to be friends with you ladies! So real and honest. I wish we lived in the same area. Please keep it up as long as you can... I will share podcast. 😊 Ladies and men who have ladies in their life listen to a couple episodes and you will blush, cringe and laugh at the same time. Please continue to bring awareness to this and yes if I ever wear a tampon again "I am not hiding it!!!!!!" Yes girl 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Important for our time

As so many reproductive rights are being threatened and rolled back, we need more than ever to dismantle shame around menstruation. This podcast's frank and entertaining dialogue does just that!
