The Personal Is Political

Several of our listeners have asked us to discuss our views on American obstetrics and birth. Today, we start that conversation and discuss the impact of U.S. birth practices on health care costs and gender equality. In the Pearls, we talk about Congress's efforts to combat the heroin epidemic and the legalization of marijuana. We also discuss the Obama administration's guidance to schools on restroom access. Finally, in the Heels, we go full MOM and discuss minivans vs. SUVs.
