So excited for more anthropology podcasts! This one is going to be great!
What a great resource!
This is a wonderful resource that people across a variety of disciplines (sociology, health, medicine, education..) will find useful. Sometimes funny, always informative.
Informative & entertaining
Great little podcast on a regular experience for the biologically female. Includes interviews with scientists, a group of adorable kids & an entrepreneur.
-1 star for not being a perfectly polished production.
