PERIOD Podcast

Period podcast is a space for menstruators and their friends to learn all about the biology and culture of the menstrual cycle. Kate Clancy, biological anthropologist and period enthusiast, interviews scholars and people with relevant lived experiences to share their thinking. Come for the period jokes, stay for the science.

Join me as I chat with Dr. Meredith Reiches of the University of Massachusetts-Boston about periods and athletic performance. Trainers for the US Women's National Team claim they harnessed their knowledge of menstrual cycles to maximize performance and help these athletes win the World Cup for the fourth time. But is it true? Oh come on, if you're a regular listener you know the answer! But listen anyway because Dr. Reiches is brilliant and it's probably the one and only chance I'll get to gush with someone about Megan Rapinoe on this here podcast.
