"Uncomfortable" is a bit of a misnomer because Emmanuel Acho is gifted at making people feel at ease having honest conversations about racism and social injustice. He talked to Zibby about making our way to the middle to find the truth, why he believes we learn history in school when we're too young to understand it, and creating a catalyst for racial reconciliation through dialogue.

Getting Ready for Travel in a Post-Vaccine World
Inspired by the “Women Who Travel Guide to Getting Back Out There” package, which launched earlier this month, we're spending this episode looking to the future—whether that be tackling travel anxieties bought on by the pandemic, relearning how to meet new people, or redefining our comfort zones. Joined by Traveler associate editor Megan Spurrell and travel writer Jessica Poitevien, we also swap notes on the big trips we're hoping to take when it's safe to do so. The conversation doesn't end there, either. We want to know where you are dreaming of going on your first trip back out there. Email a voice memo to womenwhotravel@cntraveler.com with your name, where you're based, and what you're planning, and you might hear yourself in an upcoming episode.

What Should I Read Next?
What Should I Read Next?

Ep 268: Our team's best books of the year
At the end of last year we hosted a virtual book party in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club to celebrate our favorite books of the year. The whole What Should I Read Next and Modern Mrs Darcy teams shared their top books of 2020 and we all walked away with a longer To Be Read list. Our team is made up of a bunch of bookworms with very different reading tastes, but that doesn’t stop us from swapping book recommendations all the time. We recorded that event (as we do with all of our Book Club events), and WSIRN producer Brenna worked her editing magic to create this episode for you. Head to our website to see the list of everyone's recommendations. If you’d like to see us talk about these books, the video recording of this event is available in the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club, our member community devoted to bookish community, classes, and conversation. In addition to events like these and classes on the reading life, every month we read one main book together and meet to discuss it on video—often with the author—including recent book club discussions with Anne Mah, Elizabeth Acevedo, Tayari Jones.  Join today to catch up on all of our past events and to participate in our upcoming live discussion with author Louise Miller or our next class Clean Out the Bookish Clutter. Thanks to our sponsors: * Betabrand Dress Pant Yoga Pants look like stylish dress pants, but they’re super comfortable - without any zippers or buttons that dig in.

Who you gonna call? Mythbusters!
This season on Hormonal we’ve learned a lot about birth control. From the origin of the pill, to how side effects can be beneficial, to the history and future of Reproductive Justice. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t more to learn, especially when it comes to those pesky myths that just never seem to completely disappear. This week on the Hormonal podcast, we are assembling a super squad of science-backed Mythbusters. They’re ready to tackle questions from real users like you. On the mythbusting squad we’re welcoming back Dr. Lynae Brayboy, Clue’s Chief Medical Officer–and also joining us is Amanda Shea, Clue’s Head of Science, and Dr. Hajnalka Hejja, Clue’s Science Lead for Product. "It feels like it's constantly being reinforced that we should have an exactly 28-day cycle that comes at the exact day we expect, month after month after month. And then it's completely not true."
