#137: WOMB – Dr. ANNA SMAJDOR
Unpacking the evolutionary pressure of being a woman. My guest this week is Dr. Anna Smajdor and we’re exploring the pressure on women to reproduce and become mothers – and what that means in reality for us as individuals and a collective. We question whether men are put under pressure in the same way, the ethics of the motherhood experience, and the ways that motherhood *hasn’t* progressed or innovated like the rest of society. Join us for this chunky episode packed full of thought-provoking and myth-busting ideas.
