We need as many avenues for timely, accurate and relevant information on perimenopause and menopause as possible. Even in this day and age, so many mistruths, falsehoods and outright myths remain that women need as much solid information, in as many formats as available, that they can get their hands, eyes and ears on.
The following are some of the most informative podcasts on perimenopause. Some are podcasts devoted entirely to this topic, while others are single episodes identified based on their substantive deep dive into topics like hormones, HRT, and life before, during and after the perimenopausal transition. Included here are primarily medical sources, mixed in with a few that are more lifestyle and socio-culturally oriented.
This list of resources is continually updated.
