Aileen Weintraub is an award-winning author, journalist, and editor, as well as the human home to three giant fibroid tumors. The discovery of these many years ago led to several months of forced bed rest during her pregnancy, but the silver lining (for us) was that the ordeal inspired her to write Knocked Down: A High-Risk Memoir. We devoured this book in about a week because it is hilarious, relatable, and compelling. You should buy a copy right now, but first, listen to our chat with Aileen, learn how Ellie literally gaslit her son about her own rectal gas, and enjoy Julia's continuing angst over the lack of a perimenopausal pamphlet. (Seriously... somebody get her a pamphlet STAT!)
To win a free copy of Knocked Down, leave us a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.
Contest is open until 11PM on August 16th. Winner will be chosen at random.
