Embodied Podcast

Sex and relationships are intimate — and sometimes intimidating to talk about. Host Anita Rao guides us on an exploration of our brains and our bodies that touches down in taboo territory.

Read our review on Mashable's list of the best sex, erotica, dating and relationship podcasts!

Read Anita's piece on the origin story of the Embodied series in The Huffington Post!

  • If Anita weren't boo'd up, she might wonder if there's someone in her life she already knows who is a good romantic match for her. But is it healthy to look to the past for a chance at future happiness? With help from the podcast Dating While Gray, we examine the pros and cons of "boomerang love." | Support these shows with a donation at wunc.org/give.
  • Anita, like many of us, was essentially taught that a herpes diagnosis means the end of a good sex life. Now it's time for a real education about the sexually transmitted infection, which is extremely common and far less terrifying once you open the door to conversation about it. | Support this show with a donation to wunc.org/give.
  • Anita is over adulting and would love to lose herself in some serious play time. She's never been a gamer but is intrigued by how video games help us tap into the fun side of our brains while creating spaces designed to help us strengthen our connections with others. | Follow Embodied on Twitter and Instagram @embodiedwunc.
  • Anita appreciates how movies and TV are now more representative in portraying narratives about pregnancy termination. But those stories can't compete with talking to real people about their experience having an abortion. | Support this show with a donation at wunc.org.

  • Anita combs through her own tangled relationship with body hair and asks why so many of us invest time and money on removal methods. | Want to support this show? Subscribe and leave a review! Follow the podcast on Twitter and Instagram @embodiedWUNC.
