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 talking about our periods. We want to talk about things like: how is menstruation represented in pop culture? Why are we hiding tampons up our sleeves as we walk to the bathroom? What new hygiene technologies are in development? We are sharing period stories that need to be heard. This is Love-XX: The Periodical.
