How You Can Fight Period Poverty
Period Poverty is a very real problem that impacts millions of people around the world – and undeniably here in Australia too. Even today in 2021 Australia, 22% of people surveyed did not have funds to access clean period care products, having no choice but to either improvise their own product or stay home missing out on school or work. 49% of menstruators had to wear a tampon or pad beyond the safety guideline of 4 hours, and needed to ration products out to last the duration of a period. Clearly, period poverty is not just a Third World issue.
This week’s guests Menstrual Educators Amanda and Sahara from Weaving The Red Thread are passionate change-makers who are striving to reduce period poverty by getting more period care products and education into the hands of more Australians.

Samhain Magick: Embracing the Descent into the Mystery of Autumn
the witches say the veils between the worlds of the dead and the living, the seen and unseen, are thinnest at samhain, the name of the cross-quarter sabbat (celebration) between autumn equinox and winter solstice.
mystics, pagans and those who appreciate the seasons and cycles of life find much magick, power and transformation available in listening to what the spirits tell us, and in facing the darkness, arriving frosts and scent of death on the air of samhain, because it gives us a chance to go inwards, to reflect on whether you’re living your most authentic life, and to discern what needs to die so you can come closer to your truest essence.
