In brief: Telling the truth is an act of resistance; both my guests are doing just that. Sari Botton is an amazing writer — among her other talents — and her experience seeking care for an increasingly commonly diagnosed painful uterine condition depicts the heinous way women and femme identified patients are often treated by medical professionals. Melissa McEwan has been a political blogger since that phrase was created and she lends her perspective to the administration’s first 100 days — continuing to shine light on lies and half-truths despite the intense emotional labor required. Both these women are extraordinary and I’m delighted to share these conversations with you!
