12. The Whats and Whys of the Anti-Vaccination Movement

7/25/2017
More
Poised on the tip of a needle, the debate around vaccinations is as heated as ever, and all the opposing "facts" just lead to more unrest and confusion. What's true? Who can we trust? And why is it such a big deal what other people do, anyway? Join us in this episode as we take a look at the origin of both vaccination and the recent anti-vaccination trend as we try to make a little sense of things. We also highlight why we think the debate has been so inconclusive and offer another view to...

In case you hadn't heard, gender inequality kind of sucks. As women we tend to give more attention to the ways in which it negatively affects us, but the fact is it's just as adverse for men. At the end of the day it's bad for everyone. It's not a male problem or a female problem, but a human one. Which is why in this week's episode of So Now You Know we decided to look at the effects that gender inequality can have on men. And to be honest, we were surprised at some of the things we...

09. Cat & Steph Do the Privilege Walk

6/6/2017
More
Privilege. Chances are you've heard, read, talked, maybe even had a heated twitter war about it. It's defined as "a special advantage, immunity, permission, right, or benefit granted to or enjoyed by an individual, class, or caste". Nowadays we see it often in the context of white privilege, heterosexual privilege, and male privilege. While these are very real and very important to talk about, we were surprised to see that privilege comes in so many forms, many of which we don't even think...

06. My mom said: She can tell if your baby will be a boy or a girl!

5/9/2017
More
Ever looked at a baby bump and instantly thought 'she must be carrying a girl' just based on the shape of the belly? Maybe you've heard that eating pineapples can prevent and clear up pregnancy related skin irritations? Or you've passed on the story that eating really spicy foods can help bring on labor in the long overdue mom-to-be? If so, you're one of the millions of people to have, in one form or another, come in touch with the rich folklore surrounding pregnancy. But is there any...

05. Invisible People: The Plight of the Stateless

5/2/2017
More
Our freedom and rights as citizens of a country are invaluable. Belonging to a State not only gives us access to education, healthcare, legal protection, and freedom of movement, it also contributes a great deal to how we identify ourselves as individuals. Have you ever considered what it would be like if you didn't belong anywhere? What if no country recognized you as their member? As much as 15 million people worldwide don't need to wonder. In this episode we discuss what it is to be...
