Body size diversity in entertainment is an issue that often goes unspoken or ignored by the artistic community, but is deeply felt by those who (literally) don't fit into the ideal. On this podcast, Abby Rose Morris interviews fat people in all areas of entertainment about where fatphobia shows up in their artistic lives, the fat characters that have impacted them, and the changes they would like to see regarding the treatment of body size in the arts. Join us as we challenge stereotypes of fat bodies, honor the power of representation, and dream of how entertainment can evolve to become more inclusive.

    Gilmore Girls with Layla Morris UNLOCKED

    It's fall so obviously it's time for you to hear the Gilmore Girls episode! First, Abby begs for podcast reviews and chats about life updates, A League of Their Own, fall, and being in her romcom era. Then you'll hear our formerly Patreon exclusive episode on all the fat representation and fatphobia in Gilmore Girls, featuring Abby's little sister Layla (with whom she has been watching Gilmore Girls since they were both too young to understand what Lorelai and Christopher did on that balcony).

Hadlegs ,

Oh my God! Other fat actors!

This podcast makes me feel like I’m no longer screaming into the void about representation. I’m not alone in the world anymore.

Hamiltonforevs ,

Amazing.

This podcast means the literal world to me. It’s helped me understand fat phobia and helped me become a much better fat activist. Abby is my hero honestly.

Also- if you haven’t already- could you do an episode intro talking about fat representation in anime?

hello_carol_ ,

One single episode changed my life!!!!!

Abby is so thoughtful, articulate and RELATABLE. I listened to the most recent episode on a mini road trip today and I was baffled by how Abby was able to string so many of my recent internal struggles into such perfect sentences. She is candid and doesn’t shy away from the realities of confronting her own complex relationship with her body and the world it inhabits.
