    Episode 76: WOMANHOOD, man

    May 20th, 2019  |  Season 4  |  59 mins 54 secs

    In this episode, A + K comment on the politics surrounding reproduction, and Kristin brings home the point that reproductive rights are complicated.

    “My body, my body choice” is not just about abortion. We have a right to birth control. We have a right to a safe gynecologist. We have as right to vaccinations to treat an STD. This idea that people are just “profile” or “prochoice” is nonsense because it is NEVER just that simple.

    One in four women have had an elective abortion, and A + K share their personal stories.

    It’s a great follow up to our physical health episode and is kind of a continuation of our feminism episode.

    Welcome to episode 75! We are three-quarters of the way to having launched 100 episodes and that is a milestone Amanda + Kristin never even imagined they would get to. Let’s go!

    Episodes 22 & 31 of the podcast were specifically about MENTAL HEALTH, and with the spring season and swarmer weather upon us, A + K thought it the perfect time for an episode talking about their physical health stories thus far.

    March 25th, 2019  |  Season 4  |  1 hr 2 mins

    In this episode, A + K talk about about where they are at with their personal growth. Kristin has been navigating the hills & valleys of her physical health, being a person who is in chronic pain, and shares her thoughts about telling that party of her story.

    Amanda attributes her growth thus far to a combination of the intentions she set at the start of Season 3 and what she decided on for her one little word this year. She talks to Kristin about what she’s doing to lay down a SOLID FOUNDATION at this point in her life and deal with all the background ‘stuff’ she’s been struggling with for years.
