Show Notes

For our final bonus episode of this season, our coworker Dianna has come on to talk about Period Power. Let us know what you think! We may have a part 2 in store for you!

Period Power, by Maisie Hill

Folio Facts: This month, Paige tackles the witch hunting manual, Malleus Maleficarum, which translates to Hammer of the Witches! Despite an awesome name, this book was written by a terrible dude, Heinrich Krammer, in 1486, and was used to persecute many suspected witches in the centuries that followed. Interested in learning more? Check out this video by the Law Library of Congress on their copy, or this video by Story To Tell.

Discussion Questions

  • How do you feel about Eastern/Traditional Chinese Medicines and Hill’s take on a lot of weastern period related medicines? (i.e. the pill)
  • Do you feel like her overview in chapter one gave you new, or even surprising information, NOT covered in “sex ed”?
  • What are our thoughts on Hill’s recommendation for diet to support our cycle?
