Episode 17: Birth Control Part 1 - Special Mega-sode with Welcome to the Clambake!
We have a really fun episode for you guys today. Molly and I met up with feminist podcast Welcome to the Clambake to talk all about Birth Control!
If you're a lady over 18, you're likely on birth control, have been on birth control, or have considered it. There are so many different kinds and lots of annoying side effects, so we break it down for you. What is birth control doing in our bodies? What is the difference between the pill and the IUD? Why is it so important that women are able to have access to birth control? All this an more in today's episode.
Be aware, today's episode is a little more explicit that normal. If you don't want to hear about our periods, then you might want to choose a different episode. We won't be offended!
