Heavy Flow Podcast Episode 14: Breaking Down India's Period Taboos with Aditi Gupta

This week I’m talking to Aditi Gupta, co-founder of Menstrupedia. We talk about Aditi’s experience with menstruation as a young girl in India, why she created the Menstrupedia comic and how it’s changing cultural taboos, the importance of including boys and men in menstrual education, menstrual leave and the period myths and lies women are led to believe.

Season 1 is coming to a close! Let me know in the comments or email me with topic and guest suggestions for season 2, airing in the new year!
