The Fat Joy podcast is a joyful rebellion against anti-fatness. Each episode is a conversation between host and Professional Coach Sophia Apostol and another fat person about how to flourish in our fatphobic world. We’re exploring the harms, biases, and oppressions we’ve experienced while living in a world that marginalizes plus-size & fat bodies and promotes the lies of Diet Culture. But most importantly, we’re sharing how we still dare to have the audacity and courage to reach towards joy and live our best lives while advocating for collective fat liberation & body positivity. And, at the end of every episode, Sophia reads you a poem. Topics include: body acceptance, self-love, fat activism, body positivity, fatbulous, anti-fatness, anti-diet, diet culture

    Freeing The Jiggle -- Jessie Diaz-Herrera

    Jessie Diaz-Hererra (she/her) is here to help us “Free the Jiggle,” which is one of the signature dance offerings from her company, Power Plus Wellness located in New York City. Jessie shares the moment she learned to feel shame about her body, and how that moment actually led to the co-founding of her movement business that now offers classes like aerial yoga, ballet, and aqua stretch & sound baths- all specifically for plus-size bodies.

    Jessie Diaz-Herrera is a dancer, certified group fitness instructor, and body positivity advocate who has dedicated her career to exploring and celebrating all bodies in dance. She believes that everyone should feel empowered to move and express themselves through dance, regardless of their shape or size. Through her workshops, Jessie uses body-positive affirmations, uplifting songs, and easy follow-along dance moves to create an inclusive and body-confident environment. Jessie is also the co-founder of Power Plus Wellness, a Latina-owned business curating private movement classes and events for plus-size bodies to jiggle freely, unlearn diet culture, and joyfully co-regulate in a safe community.

    Celebrating Fatness Through Art -- Lindsey Guile

    Artist Lindsey Guile (she/her) draws charcoal images of nude, fat people…on canvases that are eight-feet tall. Her fat bodies literally take up space and tower over viewers. Lindsey shares what motivated her to embrace fat liberation (spoiler: gallbladder disease and an eating disorder) and use her artistic talents to challenge the hierarchy of art.

    Lindsey Guile is a body and fat-liberation artist exploring concepts of self-image through the lens of contemporary feminist theory. Lindsey’s practice embraces an intermedia approach that utilizes drawing, printmaking, and ceramics in her explorations into how body image affects self- worth. Her work has been exhibited at The Arnot Museum, The Dorsky Museum, The Birke Art Gallery, The Mary Cosgrove Dolphin Gallery, Untitled Space Gallery, Women’s Work Gallery, The Williamsburg art & Historical Center, and more. She was an Artist in Residence at the Blue Mountain Center in the summer of 2021.

    Lindsey is an Assistant Professor of Visual Art at Dutchess Community College. She is also the Director of the Mildred I. Washington Art Gallery on campus. She has an MFA from SUNY New Paltz and a BFA and MA degrees from SUNY Oswego. Lindsey currently lives in Poughkeepsie, New York.
