The Un-doctored Truth About Birth Control

with podcast guest

Mike Gaskins


Mike Gaskins is a media writer/producer who began his journey as a women’s health advocate after a world-renowned physician lied to him about birth control side effects. This chance encounter triggered a passion for research that led Mike to discover many shocking levels of deceit and misinformation surrounding these potent drugs.
