Publisher's Summary

Please note: contains strong language and adult content.

Aunt Flo. The blob. Shark week. Whatever you call it, menstruation affects everyone. We all encounter periods to some extent in our lives, so it’s high time we talked about it.

There Will Be Blood does just that – it’s a chat show about periods. Whether menstruation is a mystery to you or you’ve come through the menopause, there will be something to learn and plenty to laugh at.

Over two episodes, women’s health expert and author of Period Power, Maisie Hill, welcomes guests into the soundproofed safety of Audible’s studio to tackle long unanswered questions, lay myths to rest, and smash loads of taboos along the way.

You can expect explanations of vulvas, PMS and period pants; personal stories about period sex and leakage nightmares; and discussion of menstrual education and period poverty.

This is an Audible Original Podcast. You can download all 2 episodes to your Library now.

when the first person introduced is a man, you've totally lost me! No one wants to listen to a man talk about menstruation

Can’t get into it

Just a bunch of trite, smarmy banter. Maybe if I had gotten further there might be so substance here but I just could not keep listening any more.

informative

I loved all of the issues addressed in both sides of the table. An open discussion about gender identity and period poverty was eye opening.

Decent

I thought this was a short zombie story, turns out it is about mensuration. I gave it a listen anyway and actually learned some stuff. Next time my partner starts talking cramps I am gonna blow her mind with what I learned! Good stuff written in a very light hearted way.

It's about menstruation

Wasted my time thinking it was the drama with the same title. Sophomoric , and it isn't easy to delete

About time...

As a male and a father of three young women, this programme is refreshing treatment of a natural and to be celebrated part of womanhood. The men's episode is a brilliant look at male attitudes this far. The second episode is a welcome space for women to share their experiences, and to educate the patriarchal society of the fundamental choices of women.

I am better educated about periods and all that is feminine that comes with it.

As a woman

I can honestly say this was one of the most insulting duos of egocentric conversations I’ve ever come across. Small bits of information included. However, I found the whole thing self serving. Not appreciating agendas being pushed at the expense of a serious subject. Nor do I appreciate my womanhood being sacrificed for other people’s feelings. Neither do I need Simone to speak on my behalf especially when hardly anything replicates anything of the like of women I mix with regularly. I especially despise being told HOW to think!

Entertaining and hugely informative - worth listening to

I loved both sets of discussions. Part 1 is men (one of whom is married to a midwife and has 4 daughters!) sharing what they understand and asking intelligent questions. Part 2 is informed woman sharing their knowledge and experiences. It is scary how taboo this subject still and is and the effect this can have on women and girls. Let’s keep talking!

Menstruators

Maisie Hill keeps referring to women who have periods as "menstruators". This is dehumanising language. She is trying to be inclusive of transpeople but it is just incredibly alienating. If transpeople are allowed to decide what terms are and are not used to describe them, then it should be equally valid for women to reject the term "menstruators". I don't know any women who would want this term applied to them.

Conversation starter...

Excellent discussion of periods- insightful and intelligent and entertaining. Useful to be able to send to my adult son's and husband as way of informing and opening up a dialogue. A must for all humans!

Everyone could do with listening to this

A really useful listen to interesting, smart people opening the conversation about something which is part of all of our lives. I learned things I didn’t know and it gave me food for thought on issues I hadn’t considered. I felt it was thoughtful and thought-provoking without crossing any lines into superior.

Very interesting

This was really interesting and the bloody men Episode particularly so. I enjoyed the second podcast less because I wasn’t as interested In the politics and would have liked more information so my 12 year old daughter could listen. But overall 2 enjoyable podcasts.

Such a great topic.

Thank you. I first listened to it by myself. Then with my two teenage girls. Wonderful topics and chats. I would really love to hear more. I think it’s great that we are trying to unshame the period and talking about it. Well done...

Great Discussion

A great podcast about a topic that affects us all is some way whether you're a person with periods or living with someone who has periods or just knows someone who has periods! I hope that girls and women can feel more confortable about this natural occurance and that they dont feel ashamed by it even when others try to make them feel ashamed.

Periods

This is an important subject which should be raised and all taboos removed from society.
