Monocycle: Episode 37, Uterus Envy

In partnership with Squarespace.

Have you ever felt that terrible, nauseating pit in your stomach? It makes doing anything other than focusing on the pit feel impossible. I used to get it every time I found out my ex-boyfriend was dating someone new. Recently, I started getting it every time I found out that someone is pregnant. I never knew how to process the pit as anything other than heartbreak but I’m starting to realize that it’s more than that — it’s envy, so in this week’s episode, we unpack that like it’s a carry-on suitcase full of grenades.

Meet you in the comments in 20.
