There Will Be Blood: The Evolution and Function of Menstruation #149

January 27, 2012

This episode was recorded when Science for the People was called Skeptically Speaking.

This week, we’re talking about what may be the most stigmatized facet of human reproduction. We’re joined by Dr. Kate Clancy, anthropology professor and science blogger, to learn about the physiology and function of menstruation, and the history of how it’s been considered in medicine and myth. And on the podcast, biologist P.Z. Myers looks at menstruation from an evolutionary perspective.
