At 16 years old, Nadya Okamoto started a non-profit called PERIOD, which grew into one of the largest youth-run non-profits with a mission to address period poverty and inequitable access to menstrual products. Today, she's the founder and CEO of August, a Gen-Z minded period and menstrual brand and social enterprise. Nadya, who also goes by the alter-ego Period Fairy to her four million TikTok followers, is an unapologetic period activist. Her daily videos push against "taboo" topics and visuals—people menstruating. In this episode, Nadya and Avery cover a wide range of topics: the history of labor, the patriarchy, the tradeoffs of social media notoriety and the power of pleasure and sleep.
