About Us

Periods! Let's get into it. Comedians and real-life friends Kate Elston, Meghann Hayes, and Meg Trowbridge are talking (and singing) about periods. And they think you should be, too. Whether you have a period, had a period, will have a period, or love someone with a period, this podcast is for you. Featuring segments like Why I Cried This Week and Read My Labias, as well as interviews with fellow period-havers, this podcast is for all those people who are sick of having to whisper “do you have a tampon?”www.viciouscyclepodcast.com

EFibroids - ever heard of 'em? We host a pod about periods and are barely familiar, yet 1 in 3 bleeders will develop them in their life!

So slip on an adult diaper, lay on down and listen!

Surprise Spotting!: Bleeding at the Pool

EYou know when your period has been over for three days so you rock your fave pair of undies and then BOOM - rando mini-period? Yeah, this episode is kind of like that but also not at all. We had some extra goodness we couldn't squeeze into our first ep, and thought you might enjoy a blonus episode about periods at the pool on this warm, long weekend. Soak in the last socially distant days of summer while your tampon soaks up all that chlorine. Enjoy!
