In conjunction with the release of the book, Blackfishing the IUD, Wolfman Books is releasing a several-part podcast of the same name to more broadly explore and shine a light on women’s experiences around gendered healthcare and the medical industry. Hosted by author, Caren Beilin (Spain, The University of Pennsylvania), and produced by audio producer, writer, and film photographer, Claire Mullen (Reveal, Radio Ambulante, 99% Invisible), Blackfishing the IUD will feature a series of intimate conversations with authors, journalists, and experts whose work engages these topics in crucial and illuminating ways.
BE A PART OF THE SHOW!
Blackfishing the IUD will also include a section of “Doctor’s Notes,” a public call-in line dedicated to the baffling, disconcerting, and often traumatizing stories women share about their experiences in and out of doctor’s offices. If you’d like to share an experience for “Doctor’s Notes” — whether in a doctor’s office or with a particular doctor, with birth control, or with gendered (or otherwise biased) medical gaslighting — please call and leave a message, and we’ll consider using it in an upcoming episode of the podcast. This project wouldn’t be possible without the unbridled and courageous voices of women, so, of course, we thank you immensely for wanting to share your story here!
