I was sitting at work today, trying to find a new podcast that I could inevitably ignore while working on payroll, and I came across a podcast called Stuff Mom Never Told You.
An off-shoot of How Stuff Works, Stuff Mom Never Told You examines feminism and gender roles, as well topics impacting women’s health and careers. Looking through the episodes, I could tell right away that I was going to love this podcast. With episodes like, “The mysteries of Nancy Drew” (I loved Nancy Drew as a kid, BTW) and “Is there a gender wage gap?”, I was immediately intrigued. Then, I happened to stumble upon an episode from August of 2010 – “What is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome?” I dropped what I was doing to give it a listen.
This episode was wonderfully enlightening. The hosts do a great job of researching the topic that they’re discussing. I learned so much from this episode and I didn’t know that was possible. I thought I knew all there was to know about PCOS already.
I’ve listened to 6 episodes so far today and I can’t wait to listen to more. Most of the episodes range from 15 minutes to an hour; perfect for the commute to and from work.
If you haven’t listened to this podcast before, I suggest you give it a listen. And if you want to learn more about PCOS, I’ve copied the link to the PCOS episode below.
