This week, we're joined by Dr. Randi Epstein, author of Aroused: The History of Hormones, which approaches hormones in a conversational and approachable way, looking at the subject from a historical and practical standpoint. We chat about Dr. Epstein’s background and how she ended up in this field. Then we dive into the book, its creation, and its content. Finally, we spend some time covering the subject of menopause before discussing some ideas around diet, nutrition, and weight gain. For a vastly informative chat, be sure to tune in!
