Katie speaks to Annie Lascoe and Margo Lang, cofounders of Conscious Period, a social enterprise that produces organic tampons while providing free menstrual products to homeless women. In the episode, they discuss the chemicals and carcinogens in conventional tampons, the menstrual needs of women living in poverty and homelessness around the world, the tampon tax, and the challenges of building a women-minded startup based on a taboo topic - especially in the male-dominated world of venture capital.
