Award-winning broadcaster and journalist Emma Barnett loathes her period. But there’s something she loathes even more: not being able to talk about it. In conversation with Rachel Johnson, Emma draws on female experiences that will make you laugh, weep and (possibly) squirm, in a fierce rallying cry to smash this ridiculous taboo once and for all. Because it’s about bloody time. Period.
