This is the first time I’ve dedicated a show to the effects of alcohol on our bodies and hormones, and it’s about time! Brooke is so knowledgeable, and she seriously delivers the goods. In this episode, we talk about Brooke’s evolving relationship with alcohol, cultural messaging around women and alcohol, how alcohol invades our mental space through the media, peer pressure around drinking, the physiological impact of alcohol, how alcohol leads to hormone imbalances, getting support and accountability on your sober-curious journey, and so much more!
This episode is brought to you by Knix, makers of comfortable, period-proof underwear.
I’ve been using period underwear since 2014, long before it was popular, so I know a thing or two about what to look for in a great pair of period undies. I recently started using Knix period underwear, and I’m actually in love. When wearing these undies, you can be fully confident that you won’t have any leaks, even when sitting or lying down for a long time.
Their cotton, leakproof underwear is soft, stretchy, and feels like regular underwear. They come in a range of absorbencies and can absorb up to eight tampons worth of liquid, so they’re great for every day of your period. Not only are they super absorbent, but they also stay dry. Plus, they’re so easy to wash you can just pop them into the washing machine with a mild detergent and tumble dry them on low.
