Welcome to Episode 20, the finale of series 3! This is our series recap where we discuss which episodes were the most important to us and how we feel the series progressed. We talk about the short-sightedness of the term imposter syndrome, the differences between how both us prepare and gather information for new episodes (research vs. anecdotes), and whether we feel there is a shift taking place which is slowly moving us away from the entrenched patriarchy of societal structures.  We close the episode talking about how to pre-order our book (dropping October '22!) and exciting new things ..read more

We talk about the insidious stigma surrounding abortion and how there does not need to be sexual violence preceding an abortion in order ..read more

We talk about the weight and expectation of activism and how doing the work can sometimes feel like an un-winnable war. We close by exploring how education is the best foundation for activism and that we need to re ..read more
