    What's a NORMAL period?

    Why is menstruation still so misunderstood? Ask Kate Clancy, the anthropology professor and period scientist who cared enough to study the relationship between COVID vaccination and temporary cycle changes when nobody else was. Cristen talks to Kate about intersectional feminist period science, what "normal" means and Period: The Real Story of Menstruation. Highlights include: an imaginary menarche, problematic faves, pathologizing vs contextualizing, a serendipitous Slack and menstrual liberation.

    Best Of: Flush the Pooptriarchy

    Why is number two extra taboo for girls? This listener fave originally aired in 2019, but unlike Joe Biden, it does not get old. Cristen revisits a pair of comedian "poop friends" and an IBS expert to find out how gender gets in our guts, the side effects of poop shame and generally dealing with unruly bowels. Highlights include: the Moth for poop stories, colonoscopy fun, wee pads and sad improv.

    Boob Sweats and Body Odors

    Boob Sweats and Body Odors

    As the old saying goes, horses sweat, men perspire, and women glisten. In which case, call me a horse; I'm dripping. Cristen (and her signature sweat mustache) dives into the gender- and class-coded human superpower that is SWEATING. Science journalist Sarah Everts (The Joy of Sweat: The Strange Science of Perspiration) explains why our bodies make sweat and how deodorant marketers spun it into a societal problem for women. Highlights include: mythbusting sweat detoxes, smell dating, wild pig pheromones and stinky spinsters.

Fun and informative

Great podcast. I regularly laugh out loud as I listen to Cristen dissect sexist nonsense and educate us about interesting things. I feel like she’s a (very smart) friend in the room with me.

LOVE IT

I have a request for advice: my mom is someone who believes in not letting anyone monopolize your body and dress codes are stupid… but today I wear a crop top to school and suddenly it was unacceptable. Advice? how do I make her say that she’s being hypocritical? - Charlie

Female Empowerment!

I LOVE LOVE this podcast- one of the few that I can listen to each and every episode. So well thought out, great dialogue, and super educational. Please keep this going!
