Periods! Let's get into it. Comedians and real-life friends Kate Elston, Meghann Hayes, and Meg Trowbridge are talking (and singing) about periods. And they think you should be, too. Whether you have a period, had a period, will have a period, or love someone with a period, this podcast is for you. Featuring segments like Why I Cried This Week and Read My Labias, as well as interviews with fellow period-havers, this podcast is for all those people who are sick of having to whisper “do you ha ...

Ok, we know at this very moment everything may not be *totally* fine — maybe you're getting a root canal, a colposcopy, a subpoena... we know life gets messy and sometimes you need to tune out. That's why we recorded another Everything Is Fine episode as our finale to season five! We needed it, and we figured you might, too. Join us for songs, quiz…
 
We've got another episode dedicated to a reusable period product — you know we love those!! This week we're covering menstrual discs with special guest Rachael Newton, who created the reusable Nixit disc. We reminisce with Rachael about our first meeting (at a party with a boob-ball pit of course), talk about where Nixit came from, and get into her…
 
If you're like the blosts, you were insanely curious about what the other room learned about puberty when they split up the classes for sex ed. We've joked about it and even wagered some guesses, but Meg Hayes did the dirty work to get some real answers. This week's episode is all about puberty for kids assigned male at birth. We find out what we h…
 
The blosts were honored to have DivaDelux herself on the pod this week — that's right, we talk with Danielle Perez about comedy, periods and all the various ways the comedy world (and hey, the world in general) really need to up their accessibility game. Danielle is also a Catholic-education survivor from SoCal, so she and MeyHay had a lot to unpac…
 
After five seasons of talking about uteri, it has come to our attention that one of our very own blosts has had a very special uterus this whole time! Meg T walks us through various uterine anomalies — how they form, their various shapes and diagnoses, and exactly what is going on with her baby box. It's a classic bleedsearch episode with lots of i…
 
WARNING: After listening to this episode, you will never think about your period the same way! The blosts were delighted to talk with the Cycle Magic Sisters (AKA Rachel LaForest and Angie Ilg), two bad ass VIBs who started Cycle Magic, a program all about harnessing the natural power of our menstrual cycles and tapping into our 'womb wisdom.' It s…
 
DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE! We've fantasized about swag for a long time and now that day is here. You can wear, carry, lay on, write in and drink out of stuff that has our logo on it - and we hope to do more designs soon. First, we just want to give people what they want - a big ol' uterus. <3 Go to our merch store here! https://www.teepublic.com/s…
 
We enjoy nothing more than digging into retro period product ads and this time we do it with our friend and fellow podcast host Aviva Siegel! Aviva hosts the pod Ad Wizards (Kate was on her show a few weeks ago talking about compilation CD commercials - check it out wherever you get your podcasts!), so we wanted to bring her on to help break down s…
 
We've got some good ol' fashioned bleedsearch for ya this week! Kate did a bit of a deep dive into emergency contraception (aka, the morning after pill, aka Plan B). She tells us how it works, the various brands out there (we see you Option 2), and adamantly reminds us IT IS NOT AN ABORTION PILL, MARJORIE. And then Kate destroyed us with a quiz tha…
 
We've had the pleasure of knowing this gem-of-a-human since college and she's been a blistener since episode one... and now you're very lucky to get her in your ear holes — it's NADIA VAZQUEZ! Nadia joined us to talk about one of the best shows on television today: PEN15. We get into the episodes that cover menstruation and then gush about the crea…
 
Carla Lee is back, blisteners! Our dear friend and hilarious human returned to fill us in on what's terrifyingly coined as the "fourth trimester," aka, the first three months post-birth. When Carla was last on the pod, she was unknowingly pregnant with her second baby — now she's on the other side with stories of placenta pills, vagina care after l…
 
Karla Welch and Sasha Markova were sick of the toll disposable period products were taking on the environment — and society's general attitude towards our cycles. So, they founded The Period Company and made affordable, size-inclusive, cute period undies while embracing and celebrating our bleed. We talk origins, menstrual journeys, and hear some o…
 
Soooo, the past 15 months have been rough, huh? And to pour lemon juice into our very fresh, deep 2020 paper cut, we're learning that some folks have noticed that COVID, the vaccine and tear gas (which we can't BELIEVE is still used by police on it's own people JFC RAAAAGE...ahem) have altered periods. So, we thought an 'On the Bleedia' episode was…
 
We had the distinct honor of having comedian and musician Marcia Belsky on the pod! We dig into her hit song 100 Tampons, the space program, cis-dude reactions, first periods, recent periods, writing musical comedy, and selling out to any period brand that is hiring. Throw some loose tampons in your bag and join us on our rocket ship of laughs.…
 
Kate had a baby! And we've got every detail about that experience right here in this episode. Kate leads us through what the day was like, what contractions actually feel like (including recording herself going through one!), the various bodily functions that let rip when you're in the throws of labor, and her c-section (aka, baby came out through …
 
This has been a LONG. TIME. COMING. After getting fully vaxxed, Kate and The Meg's got together in THE SAME ROOM to hold each other's damn hands and talk about their periods. We cover Kate becoming a mom (more on that in next week's episode), Meg T's cystecomy, and Meg H's beast of a new period. Also love, laughs new crazy period questions and our …
 
JUNE JUNE JUNE! 9TH 9TH 9TH! Vicious Cycle season five will PREMIERE PREMIERE PREMIERE! We've got another great season coming at ya, with hilarious guests, lots of bleedsearch, and TOUCHING BECAUSE WE CAN BE IN THE SAME ROOM AGAIN. Stock up on heating pads and products, bleeders, we're back!By Kate Elston, Meghann Hayes and Meg Trowbridge
 
Join us for our last episode of season four! <3 We know we're going to have a good time when comedian, journalist and political wonk Francesca Fiorentini comes on the pod, so we invited her on to wrap up our season and discuss the recent election results, our newest member of the Supreme Court (for whom we brainstormed some nicknames) and, ya know,…
 
It's no surprise that we had LOTS to talk about with OBGYN Dr. Kate White, so here is part two of our interview. We bring back questions from previous episodes, like how worried should we be about exploding ovaries, and do we stop bleeding in swimming pools? But, Dr. Kate also shares her experience with pregnancy loss and what spurred her to start …
 
Next to the pod's impending baby, interviewing gyno extraordinaire Dr. Kate White was our light at the end of the 2020 hellscape-tunnel. (If you're new and wondering who Dr. Kate is, check out our Ask a Gyno episodes in season two!!!) We saved up our most weird and random questions and she delivered the goods. In part one of our chat, we cover topi…
 
With the VAST array of options for uterus-havers, some of us have wondered aloud and loudly "is male birth control ever going to be a thing?" This week, Kate did the bleedsearch to answer that question and many more! We review the history of BC, talk about options in the works for sperm-holders, found more reasons to adore Loretta Lynn, and wrap it…
 
It's the day we've been waiting for in the US (and maybe some of our blisteners on other continents have been watching in horror as well?!). It's the day after the election... but we recorded this episode before the election. It was a simpler time... er, no it was still a really complicated, fucked up time. Anyways, all that to say, this episode ba…
 
As we've learned in past episodes, a lot of things have to go right to get pregnant, and getting help is so much more common than we think (that's why it's so important to talk about it!). We learned about Kate's fertility journey last week, and this week, we chat with actor and comedian Millie Brooks about her experience with IVF, her podcast (Me,…
 
We've talked about parenthood on this podcast before (you know, with the menstrual cycle playing a pretty big role there and all), but this episode is VERY special because our very own blost Kate is PREGGO! She opens up about her fertility journey, we meet her fertility doctor, Danielle Lane, and talk about intrauterine insemination (IUI). Learn mo…
 
With so much going on in the U.S. (and the world... and the super massive blackhole in the center of the universe, and and and...) we wanted to chime in on the passing of RBG and her potential (sigh, likely) replacement Amy Coney Barrett. Meg Hayes gives her Catholic hot take while Kate and Meg T try to kegel-clench this reality away. Tune in and c…
