    Prioritising Pleasure with Self-Esteem / Rebecca Lucy Taylor

    Hi Body Protestors! it's our Season finale, and we're ending with a very special episode - Honey and Nadia chat with Pop Star extraordinaire Self Esteem, Rebecca Lucy Taylor. Prioritise Pleasure has been lauded as the top album of 2021 by a multitude of publications, and rightly so - it's a rallying cry to stop dimming your light to make others comfortable. Rebecca wants to show people (esp. women) that there’s another way outside of patriarchal norms and expectations Rebecca talks to us about her career, the moments that helped shape her relationship with herself, queer identity and trusting your creative instincts. We discuss The power of vulnerability and the importance of therapy. We adore this episode and we hope you do too!
    No Knowledge Noodle this week, instead we have a wonderful clip of Self Esteem, playing us out! See you for season five, and thank you for joining us!

    Poses, Poses, and More Poses with Bronze Abloh

    Poses, Poses, and More Poses with Bronze Abloh

    This week is our final episode before we slip into festive season hibernation, but don't you worry, it's of course a very juicy one to tide you over until January rolls round. Honey and Nadia talk to the effervescent Bronze Abloh. Bronze gives us a whistlestop history lesson into their understanding of ballroom but as Bronze said, gather your information from as many resources as possible - watching Paris is Burning and Pose is a good starting point after listening to this conversation. We talk about the ballroom scene and voguing, queer community/family, life drawing, tattoos, depression
    CW. Drugs, suicide ideation, self-harm
    No knowledge noodle this week! Wishing everybody a safe and happy festive season, we'll back after the holidays!

Really interesting and refreshing

Just recently found this and am hooked. I’m not usually a big fan of podcasts as I find it hard to find the time to listen to them. But am making the effort for this. Such a useful resource for anyone (like me) is trying to heal their relationship with their body and food. Thank you so much Nadia and Honey.

Fantastic mix of storytelling and research

Honey and Nadia draw you in with their engaging, affable personalities and the moving personal stories of their brilliant guests, and then keep you hooked with the educational and genuinely helpful content they weave into each episode.

This podcast has helped me with my relationship with my body and provides enjoyable, inclusive, and thoughtful insights in every episode.

Thank you for all you do!
