Venus Rising is a podcast welcoming you into our living room for chats about all things fertility, infertility and women’s reproductive health.

The first episode launched Friday, Sept. 13 on Podomatic at, and we’ll keep you posted as we work towards making Venus Rising available on additional listening platforms.

We have incredible educational guests lined up for you, like the influential Gary Powell; Taina Bien-Amie, Executive Director of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women; and Dr. Diane Tober, Medical Anthropologist and author. We will also be welcoming back some of our most influential surrogates and donor conceived persons to share their first-hand experiences as not only donors but the result of someone’s choice to donate. Our goal is as ever – to create conversation, facilitate discussion and encourage you to think beyond the masses.
