#26 | Emilie Pine

In show twenty-six, award-winning author Emilie Pine helps Tara to do a deep dive on periods. Tara and Emilie aren’t doctors, instead, they jump the chat off from Emilie’s essay Notes on Bleeding and Other Crimes from her bestseller Notes to Self (Tramp Press). Why are we still so reluctant to talk about periods? What if you’re not having them? And what’s the deal with disgust? Also: to hair or not to hair, and creaming. What’s a leg hat and why would someone throw a scarf down their leg? All will be revealed.
