    22: Shauna Solomon-Krakus on eating disorders, diet culture, and the weight of body representation

    22: Shauna Solomon-Krakus on eating disorders, diet culture, and the weight of body representation

    Hi everybody, and thank you for tuning in to episode 22 of the Learn With Lels podcast.

    In this episode, I spoke with Shauna Solomon-Krakus, a doctoral student in clinical psychology at the University of Toronto who studies eating disorders and body image.

    In our conversation, Shauna and I talked about:
    - society’s shift from thinspiration to fitspiration and how that change isn’t necessarily a better approach;
    - diet culture and how dangerous it is;
    - how key body representation is in the media and how health looks so different for everyone; and
    - suggestions if you or someone you know is dealing with an eating disorder.

    We also talked a little bit about my experience with binge eating and perfection and how those things were so connected.

    If you’ve ever struggled with dieting or body image, or if you know someone who’s struggled with these things, I think you’ll find this conversation really insightful and hopefully helpful. Even if you don’t think that you’ve struggled with these topics, I think this is a good conversation to listen to because diet culture really is so ingrained in our society that we don’t even notice how it impacts us. In listening back to this conversation, I’ve been realizing some of the biases that I have and have started thinking about some of the ways that I can make improvements—because I’m definitely still learning too!

    I hope you enjoy this conversation, and if you would like to learn more or need more resources, Shauna suggests checking out NEDIC, the National Eating Disorder Information Centre.

    Hello everyone, and thanks for tuning in to episode 20 of the Learn With Lels podcast!

    In this episode, I spoke with Marley Bowen, who is one of the executive directors of Get REAL, a non-profit organization that fights LGBTQ+ discrimination by promoting acceptance in schools and workplaces through workshops and after-school programs.

    - some of the pushback they’ve received for their work;
    - how they’ve adjusted with the pandemic (when so much of their work was based on school visits);
    - the new things they’re working on; and

    19: Shailene Panylo on Black Lives Matter, organizing the Oshawa protest, and creating an anti-racist future

    Hello everyone, and thanks for tuning in to episode 19 of the Learn With Lels podcast! 

    In this episode, I spoke with Shailene Panylo, who is an Oshawa resident, community leader, and the organizer of the Oshawa Black Lives Matter protest that happened last month.

    In our conversation, we talked about:
    - the Black Lives Matter movement;
    - what planning the Oshawa protest was like and how it went;
    - how her experience with racism growing up has impacted her efforts and the changes she’s working toward;
    - the importance of taking care of your energy when doing anti-racism work; and
    - what people can do if they want to get involved.

    We covered some big and important topics in our conversation, and I really appreciate Shailene for taking the time to talk with me and to spread some knowledge that I hope will be helpful for people.

    I also feel the need to point out that there’s so much great information out there about BLM, anti-racism, and allyship, so if you don’t know what to do or if you don’t understand something, I encourage you to look it up. There’s much out there, and I hope that aside from listening to this, that we all continue to learn and unlearn and use our voices and get involved wherever we can!
