    The Problematic Fave

    The Problematic Fave

    It's finally here!

    Join me while I discuss some of my favourite things: problematic characters I love, skincare, and make-up. I will take you on a journey of confusing admiration of the Mindy Project and Gilmore Girls. I will twist you a tale of my never ending love for Mindy Lahiri and Sookie St. James. After that, I will hit you with my brand new segement: a Fat Girl's Guide to Skincare, starting with a discussion of my skincare routine and a whirlwind review of Glossier and Milk Makeup. Of course your old favourites are here -- we check in Rebel and discuss the Horrible and Potentially Fatal Diet Tip of the Day. Spoiler Alert: I'm really mad about the diet tip I found.

    The Sad Fat High School Girl

    The Sad Fat High School Girl

    It's BACK2SCHOOL time, I haven't been back to school in a few years but in honour of my favourite time of year I am tackling the trope of the sad fat girl in high school.

    You have definitely seen her on your TV before - she's frumpy, she's sad, she's bullied, and all she wants to do is goto the dance with her crush. In this episode, I will talk about the DUFF (the Designated Ugly Fat Friend), Terri from Degrassi the Next Generation, and Insatiable (yup).

    So lean back, relax, cuddle up with your #PSL, and press play. And if there's one thing you take away from today's episode it's that Paige Michaluk is this podcasts #1 enemy.

    The Fat Best Friend (or the #FBF)

    The Fat Best Friend (or the #FBF)

    We have seen this trope again and again. The fat best friend, the #fbf, the sidekick to the conventionally attractive, thin, main character. In this episode, the inaugural episode, super special guest Lindsay Stewart and I tackle three huge examples of this: George Costanza from Seinfeld, Sookie from Gilmore Girls, and Julie from Ladybird. 

    Join us on this adventure as we dissect the #fbf in the media... but also get to some serious talk about how the fat best friend trope exists irl... in our relationship... where I AM the FAT BEST FRIEND. 

    Remember to follow, like, subscribe, download, rate, and comment. I wanna know how you feel and what you think about the #fbf. Let me know if you're my fat best frenemy.
