…and Menstrual Equity for All
In the last episode of season one, young activists tell us about their work for “menstrual equity” – the idea that period products should be affordable, safe, and available to everyone who needs them.
His Sympathy Cramps
As a trans man, PJ Brooks started taking hormones in college, and his period stopped. But once he met Zoë Johnson, the two found themselves experiencing premenstrual syndrome (PMS) together. In this episode, we hear about the couple’s discomfort, acceptance, and love. We also talk to a doctor who unpacks PMS for us.
Two Dads, Two Daughters, Two Periods
Raising two daughters is hard, especially when they’re in their teens and starting their periods…especially when you’re two dads who have never experienced menstruation. In this episode, Erik and Mark, along with their daughters, Ceci and Liv, talk about how their family navigated periods together.
Cass Draws Outside the Lines
For years, the courageous Cass Bliss spoke out about being a trans and non-binary menstruator...and sparked both hateful backlash and world recognition. We talked to them about how they got started and how Toni the Tampon was born.
EPISODE 2 López Family Values
Guided by three generations of López women, we hear how one family’s attitude toward their bodies and menstruation has transformed through time and space. In this episode, twenty-year-old Aszana, her mother, Vanessa, and her grandmother, Rosa, each share their unique period stories.
EPISODE 1 Just in Time for Lola
In Feeling My Flo’s pilot episode, high schooler Lola Blackman talks to host Kamilah Kashanie about being a late bloomer, her feelings about the idea of “womanhood,” and wondering when she would finally get her period. Our producer, Mia Warren, also investigates why people are late bloomers – spoiler alert: there’s nothing wrong with it!
