Join us as we demystify the fat experience through discussions of sex, art, swimwear and each other! We try to keep it light, but it can definitely get heavy. So come with us!
Just a Catch Up!
We took this episode to catch you podcast bbs up on definitely new, and possibly exciting updates in our universe! We recorded this two weeks ago, which in 2020 is an eternity, so Maureen pops in at the beginning to address some ~updates on our updates~
We’re joined by plus-size style influencer and autumn-phile, Maggie McGill! We talk about ways to still enjoy fall during a pandemic, how Maggie got started in all this madness, Mumford & Sons, and y’all, we get so off track.
PCOS? More like POS.
CW: Depression, and we talk about blood a lot.Maureen was formally diagnosed with PCOS! We talk about symptoms, express sadness about not feeling empowered to get checked out sooner, and BLOOD. BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD.
On today’s episode, we talk about Digital Decapitation, or the act of showcasing the body of a fat person without their head or face as a “cautionary tale” in media. It’s terrible, we’re pissed, come along for the ride.
I Am Not a Number on a Scale ft. FlynFluffy
We’re joined today by Joyniece, aka @FlynFluffy! We mourn the loss of Catherine’s and are suitably shocked that Lane Bryant is filing for bankruptcy, we talk about how small fats tend to monopolize the conversation around fat justice and don’t leave room for super fats, tears are shed, and THAT’S OKAYYYY.
Today we’re talking about the Plus Size Blogger Index, created by Instagram user @timorous.me! We marvel at the variety of body shapes that can inhabit a certain clothing size, discuss the importance of transparent and clear resources made available to large bodies, and there’s a fun, unexpected teaser for our NEXT episode at the very end!
