    198. Your Fat Friend #2 - We talk about whiteness - Part 2

    In Part 2 of a two part conversation Sofie talks to Your Fat Friend about whiteness. It’s an uncomfortable and flawed conversation because it’s two white people talking about whiteness but, in the face of global systemic white supremacy and police violence, it seems an important conversation to have.

RRHighlander ,

Listen

Sofie is a lovely comic and also an excellent interviewer. She leaves plenty of space for her guests to speak and asks perfect questions. Lots of deep topics handled lightly. It’s a comforting safe space while the world goes mad around us. 5*

SaffiLeigh ,

Inspiring and insightful

Just the most inspiring and insightful people. These conversations are so comforting and eye-opening. Sofie is a fantastic host, and the conversations feel authentic and real.

Helciak ,

A great comfort

I enjoy the honesty of your conversations; the mix of sadness, anger, fear and laughter.
I feel like I am able to connect to the some of the sentiments discussed and then learn more about those that I do not relate to. Thank you for sharing.
