Hosted by Zarna Surti, the TONAL is a bi-monthly podcast highlights women of color and topics that surround them—all while making tons of inappropriate comments.



ON pregnancy

This week, Zarna Surti sits down with the co-founder of LOOM, Erica Chidi Cohen, and the founder of Fashion Mamas, Natalie Alcala to talk about all things baby-related. They leave Zarna partially mortified, but also completely comfortable with the word "vaginal." Balance, babies.
