#36 Periods Explored (A Book Not Yet Red)

Hey, you there!

Yes, you looking at the podcast.
Have you recently ovulated? Found yourself with one egg fewer? Let a gamete go unfertilised? Shed some womb lining?
Then you might have had a period.
It's not just you. They're all the rage. People from all corners of the globe are getting aboard this great new craze.
'But, Friday Night Lip Service,' we hear you ask. 'If everyone's doing it, how can I get an edge and impress my family and friends in the field of ovular reproductive cycles?'
Why, dear shopper, by playing this very podcast. When you listen to Izzy, Nicky and Nida talk with Rosie Stevens, a writer researching menstruation for an upcoming book, you'll learn as much fun and interesting new information about The Flow as they do.

#8 Periods Revisited (Red Vag of Courage)

About 28 days ago, Jess and Nida brought you their perspective on menstruation. Since then, some of the rest of the team have been lining up our own thoughts on the subject. Tonight a different take on The Curse as your visitors come on to pad your evening.

So pour some blue liquid, don your tight white jeans and get out your cow's-head diagram. It's that time of next month as Daria, Lucy and new guest Amy get bloody irregular with topics, moon over the positives, rag on the negatives, and present their own period piece.

#4 Periods (Talkin’ ‘Bout My Menstruation)

Jess and Nida bring you a discussion on menstruation.

They'll cycle through what it means personally, culturally and even socially. Don't forget, you can egg them on with a spot of commentary via E-mail or the Facebook page.
Take it as red that they'll keep up the flow of conversation and talk ova the whole bleeding thing - period.
