    Self Care/Taking Care Of Yourself

    After a two year -- uh -- hiatus, we're happy to present almost two hours of hot new Fatcast action! (YES, featuring my charming lisp and multitudinous "y'know"s!)

    In this episode, Marianne and I discuss how incredibly difficult it can be to take care of yourself, and it's a little less upbeat than we planned. Subjects covered include "fitnessing," feeding ourselves, setting boundaries, getting medical care, and developing a personal style. Also we agree that HILLS ARE TERRIBLE.

    Risk Management

    In this episode, Marianne and I have a philosophical discussion about taking chances and living self-acceptance every single day. If it sounds sort of new-agey and earnest, that's because it is!

    Fatcast Live at Re/Dress NYC! [Raw audio]

    This is the uncut recording from our live Fatcast on May 1. Unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented us getting a high-quality recording, so the sound on this is... not great. It starts off kinda quiet, but once we start using the amplifier setup, it does improve a little bit.

    Anyway, our apologies for the lousy sound, but we hope you dig it anyway!

    Off the rails

    This is a short episode in which Marianne and I discuss our excitement for this weekend's Fat Girl Fleamarket, and the live Fatcast happening at Re/Dress the Sunday after. We also have a case of the giggles.

    I only just realized it now, but today marks one year since we started this thing. HAPPY BIRTHDAY FATCAST!

    Miscellaneous Topics

    In this episode, Marianne and I are dispensing with the usual "big topic" format and talking about a bunch of random crap, from Tumblr's capacity for social justice organizing to whether Taco Bell is evil. Do enjoy.
