Podcast #268 // Mara Altman on Gross Anatomy

Today’s guest is writer Mara Altman. Mara is the author of the new book, Gross Anatomy: Dispatches from the Front (and Back). I loved this honest conversation Mara and I had about chin hair, hair on our upper lips, bikini lines, vaginal smell, hemorrhoids, and much, much more. We touch on PMS and demystifying the stigma around PMS and what we can learn from PMS. Additionally, we discuss why we feel shame around our bodies and how we can work to overcome that shame. Mara also shares her writing process, interesting body facts, and her relationship with her own body.

In this episode Mara and I talked about several videos she’s created to go along with her book. You can find those videos here.
