In today’s episode, we play our favorite game, Burden or Delight, with Meha Ahmad, senior producer at WBEZ’s Reset, and Niala Boodhoo, host of Axios Today! They decide whether a new Apple charger, a flood of wine, and extended birthday celebrations are delightful or burdensome.

Then, we talk all about periods. Up until now, no one has ever published a study on menstrual products that used actual blood to test them. Dr. Bethany Samuelson Bannow, a clinician and hematologist at Oregon Health and Science University, just helped change that. We talked to her about the results of her team’s study on the absorbency of period products.
