It's no surprise that we had LOTS to talk about with OBGYN Dr. Kate White, so here is part two of our interview. We bring back questions from previous episodes, like how worried should we be about exploding ovaries, and do we stop bleeding in swimming pools? But, Dr. Kate also shares her experience with pregnancy loss and what spurred her to start …
 
Next to the pod's impending baby, interviewing gyno extraordinaire Dr. Kate White was our light at the end of the 2020 hellscape-tunnel. (If you're new and wondering who Dr. Kate is, check out our Ask a Gyno episodes in season two!!!) We saved up our most weird and random questions and she delivered the goods. In part one of our chat, we cover topi…
 
With the VAST array of options for uterus-havers, some of us have wondered aloud and loudly "is male birth control ever going to be a thing?" This week, Kate did the bleedsearch to answer that question and many more! We review the history of BC, talk about options in the works for sperm-holders, found more reasons to adore Loretta Lynn, and wrap it…
 
It's the day we've been waiting for in the US (and maybe some of our blisteners on other continents have been watching in horror as well?!). It's the day after the election... but we recorded this episode before the election. It was a simpler time... er, no it was still a really complicated, fucked up time. Anyways, all that to say, this episode ba…
 
As we've learned in past episodes, a lot of things have to go right to get pregnant, and getting help is so much more common than we think (that's why it's so important to talk about it!). We learned about Kate's fertility journey last week, and this week, we chat with actor and comedian Millie Brooks about her experience with IVF, her podcast (Me,…
 
We've talked about parenthood on this podcast before (you know, with the menstrual cycle playing a pretty big role there and all), but this episode is VERY special because our very own blost Kate is PREGGO! She opens up about her fertility journey, we meet her fertility doctor, Danielle Lane, and talk about intrauterine insemination (IUI). Learn mo…
 
With so much going on in the U.S. (and the world... and the super massive blackhole in the center of the universe, and and and...) we wanted to chime in on the passing of RBG and her potential (sigh, likely) replacement Amy Coney Barrett. Meg Hayes gives her Catholic hot take while Kate and Meg T try to kegel-clench this reality away. Tune in and c…
 
If you've heard about Goop (Gwyneth Paltrow's wellness brand), you probably also heard the audible eye roll that accompanies a mention. So, we wanted to dig into the good, the bad and the WTF of this controversial company. We cover the vagina candle, yoni egg, and vaginal steaming mentioned on the site, as well as host a few fun segments like How M…
 
Amanda Rosenberg (friend of the pod and author of That's Mental) is BACK and she is shedding light on a mental health condition that affects 5-8% of menstruators: Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder(PMDD). Here's why we love Amanda so hard: she speaks openly and plainly about mental illness, helping to tear down the stigma that often prevents people ge…
 
We've got some more bleedsearch coming at ya on this episode! Meg T dug into the what-and-why of ovaries - and after all these seasons, your blosts were still WOEFULLY ignorant about their bodies. When will they learn?! We bring you mind-blowing facts, introduce you to hormones you may not have met yet, and it wouldn't be a research episode without…
 
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 Fibroi…
 
Hope you've got a liner or light day - because we've got another Surprise Spotting coming at ya! Jessica guides us through how astrology can help us understand history and use it as a lens to come to terms with events taking place in the US today. Then, we find a new spin to Read My Labias that we think you're going to like - we certainly do. Hit p…
 
In this very special episode of Vicious Cycle, we chat with esteemed astrologer, psychic, published author and fellow podcaster Jessica Lanyadoo. We dive into what it feels like to be psychic, how deep astrology can go (like medical astrology) and she even does the pod the honor of reading Meg T's birth chart! Pop on a pad and look at the stars wit…
 
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 weeken…
 
The blosts are back from meno-pause and while we were sheltering in place A LOT HAPPENED. We give period updates (or lack-there-of HI POD BABY), cover some news stories, and dive into the most recent reason why MeyHay experienced some rage-rage (spoiler: Ireland isn't super chill about tampons). Slip on your fave pair of period panties and press pl…
 
Well, we had a...fine...?...menopause but we're ready to get back into our blisteners' ears, hearts and uteruses. Who knows, maybe we'll even start influencing each other’s cycles! (We FINALLY get into that topic this season.) Kate and The Megs bring you Season 4 of Vicious Cycle, filled with lots of songs, laughs and menstrual-themed research, plu…
 
It's our last episode of the season, and we want to send you off into these COVID-19 times with some pointers to keep your vagina healthy and happy. We cover some do's and don'ts, vaginal steaming (if Gwyneth does it, should you?), bidets and tabos! Never heard of a tabo? Well, you'll be singing about them by the end of this episode. May your perio…
 
(Originally released July 2019) Your blosts did their research and found that there are multiple ways you can use your own menstrual blood, and they range from sciency, to witchy, to ... a little gross. Come for the pro-tips on how to utilize the flow you've been letting go – and stay for the surprise song. Pop in a cup and catch this episode!…
 
Quizzes, Mad Libs, a boyband-themed trip down memory lane and so much more. We've got a third Everything Is Fine episode for ya, and it's inadvertently Slumber Party-themed! The hosts needed this and maybe you do, too. Tune the news out for an hour and tune into this delightful episode - and try not to laugh at the third installment of "Which Vicio…
 
We decided to give ourselves a little treat this week and share our favorite periods on TV (and one movie) with each other and you! Take a break from the news and laugh with Amy Schumer, the cast of Blackish, Monica & Phoebe and so many more hilarious bleeders. Oh, and friend of the pod Lauren Bacall helps us with our countdown, so put on your red …
 
That is right. The podcast about periods finally read the period book to end all period books: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. And we had the pleasure to discuss it with the preeminent experts in the field, Alison and Jody from The Blume Saloon podcast. We get into the brilliance of Judy Blume, which character each host identifies as, and we …
 
Welp. We're in the midst of a global crisis, so we thought what the world needs now is love sweet love AND another episode of Everything is Fine. Because, like everything is NOT fine, but for the next hour it can be sort of ok. We've got more quizzes, songs, comforting poems, and even a little dance party for you to join in. We're sending you all l…
 
Welcome to the main event! After all our bleedsearch on athletes who bleed, we got to talk with one! Amy Rodriguez joined us on the pod to talk about her career as a professional soccer player and her experience having a child and then rejoining the US women's team and going on to win at the 2015 World Cup! We also try to get all the dirt on the pl…
 
We're back with more bleedsearch and stories about athletes with periods! We dive deep into how hormones and pregnancy affects players bodies, cover bad ass bleeders in action (like freebleeding all over the London Marathon BOOM!), and get a pro-tip from a roller derby competitor that blows both Megs' minds. Tune in and join the Bleed Team!…
 
In this episode, Kate brings a boat-load of research about athletes who bleed. (So much we had to break it up into multiple episodes.) We cover team sports, solo competitors, olympic performances, and the outrageous reasons why menstruators have been stopped from competing. Plus, we hear from sporty blisteners! Put on some white jersey shorts and f…
 
In this episode, we talk to Amanda about her new book, That's Mental (out now - go get it already), getting her period at an English boarding school and blaming PMS meltdowns on mental illness (we've all been there). We also learn that Meg T would do anything for approval in middle school (surprised?). Slap a pad in your swimming costume and hit th…
 
It's our last episode of season two, and we're sending you off into the menoPAUSE with song! We brought back the cast of Vicious Cycle the Musical to lay down some tracks, play some live performances, and share some never-before-heard B Sides.

We managed to sit down with Luna in between her trips around the country doing stand-up to talk about her menstrual journey - and what a journey it has been. She tells us about growing up in Louisiana (and the unusual myth about periods there), her experience with PCOS, and introduces us to the term "down to clown." Make sure to clench those kegels…
 
The hosts of "Sssh Periods" and grand prize winners of NPR's student podcast competition sat down (remotely) with your hosts to remind us what it was like to be in middle school. All the awkward memories flooded back in (like hiding your big ol' pad in your Lisa Frank trapper keeper on the way to the bathroom), but they also gave us a lot of hope. …
 
Your blosts did their research and found that there are multiple ways you can use your own menstrual blood, and they range from sciency, to witchy, to... a little gross. Come for the pro-tips on how to utilize the flow you've been letting go – and stay for the surprise song. Pop in a cup and catch this episode!…
 
You may have noticed our Instagram account is filled with sometimes beautiful, but more often than not hilarious, art inspired by periods (and if you don't follow us on IG, like, what are you waiting for?). Two of our favorite artists – Annie Wong and Crystal Ro – sat down with us to talk about their process, their periods, and we even get an exclu…
 
We're back with Dr. Kate White, and we jump right in talking about menopause, how stress affects your period, strange things pulled out of vaginas, and what the deal is when your period comes out in one long sheet (yeah, that's a real thing and Dr. Kate even sent us a pic...). Most importantly, we discuss how to find the right gyno for you, and it'…
 
Two Megs. Two Kates. One pod. This week we bring you part one of our interview with the kind, patient, and wonderful Dr. Katharine White (Dr. Kate to us).
