In this episode, Emma interviews entrepreneur and feminist activist Miki Agrawal.
The Canadian born former professional soccer player told Emma: "If I can own the vagina and butthole, I win." She's talking about her current endeavors, which include CEO and co-founder of THINX, pretty panties for "women with periods" replacing the need for pads and tampons.

Offshoots include Icon, for female incontinence, and a boyshort style, marketed to the female-to-male transgendered community. Miki is also creator of Tushy, a bidet product that retrofits on a typical toilet. Every one of Miki's ventures challenge the status quo regarding body, gender and sexuality.

Miki wrote the No. 1 bestseller How to Do Cool Sh*T, and was recipient of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival's "Disruptive Innovation Award," and named to Forbes' "Top 20 Millienials On a Mission."
