We’re on a mission to empower you to feel good about yourself! After all, your body is the least interesting thing about you…
We grew up in the 90s and 00s when low rise jeans were high fashion, Bridget Jones was the poster fat girl and diet culture was rife. Now, as plus size women, we’re unlearning everything we’ve been taught about body image, acceptance and confidence, and this podcast takes you along for the ride!
Join us as we talk about everything from diet culture to dating, mental health to social media, fashion and giving zero f***s about what people think.
Are we being fetishised or fancied?
Yayyyy we've made new podcast friends, and this week we're chatting to Nicci and Alex from the Swipe Fat podcast! They have beautiful American voices, and sooo many stories about their lives as single fat women. So tune in for lots of chats about dating horror stories, orgasms, fatfishing, fannies, fetishisation, one night stands, and the best sex we've ever had. Plus we chat to QUEEN Kayley, who recently went viral because she carried on with her wedding after being jilted at the altar by an absolute dickwad.
Laura on Finding the Funny
Here's another podcast we think you'll love! Meet Ange and Ruth Corden (who came on our show a few weeks ago). They're the funny, straight talking, slightly sweary sisters who spend roughly half an hour a week finding the funny in the shit that is life. From the big questions to the continued frustrations of having to "adult", this podcast is bound to get you laughing.
The Scary Reality of Weight Loss TV
Unfortunately, we'll all remember the boom of weight loss shows in the 2000s. From the Biggest Loser to Supersize vs Superskinny, these shows harmed our relationships with our bodies and made us think that we had to crash diet. They're the epitome of diet culture and the toxic 'eat less move more' attitude. And the reality is, they usually didn't even work, and sometimes harmed people's bodies. So this week, after we rant about our own experience with weight loss shows, we chat to our friend Sarah LeBrocq, who was on a weight loss show in 2013, about her experience and how it turned her into an obesity advocate.
Dating, ageing and drinking wine with Lauren Talulah
We've always known our Lauren and guest Lauren aka Curvy Roamer are practically the same person. And now finally the Laurens are united and getting wine drunk!! In this episode, we had a big fat dmc about everything from dating and being fetishised, to the pressure of ageing and getting botox, and even to Lauren (Talulah)'s past life as a dairy farmer. It's chaos, but in the best possible way. So grab your rosés and settle in!
Sex and Intimacy with Sexfluencer Scotty Unfamous
The episode you’re about to hear was recorded before the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II. We're sending our condolences to everyone who’s mourning, particularly her family.
We've been wanting to talk about sex FOREVER, but as you know we are very much not experts... So we've got the incredible sexfluencer (best word ever), Scotty Unfamous, to come and chat to us about removing stigma, loving your body in the bedroom, getting slutty, and how to ask for what you want. Plus we have some exciting news - check out our new subscription offering on Apple and Patreon to help us keep the show going!
Unlearning fashion rules and finding plus size clothes we ACTUALLY like
Fashion might seem a bit frivolous, especially because we always say the way you look is the least interesting thing about you. But it’s so hard to actually let go of beauty standards - we’re unlearning a lifetime of shit here! And sometimes wearing nice clothes that you love can really kick start your confidence. But there are soooo many “rules” we’ve been taught we should follow when it comes to fashion. And wtf even is “flattering?! We’re still learning how to navigate it all, and trying fight diet culture while still being confident and comfortable in our own bodies. So in this episode we’re having an open and honest chat about how to break fashion “rules”, whether it’s ok to still be stuck in the “flattering” mindset, and whether we actually really like floral midi dresses ?!?
My Weekly Pick-Me-Up
This podcast is like getting a fancy iced coffee on a sunny day - these girls are gregarious, gorgeous, and so gracious with one another - if this doesn’t lift you up a bit, get yourself checked out. I save episodes of this one for a weekly solo-outing and I’m totally here for it. Keep up the great work.
The host needs to stop getting out her unsolicited bad advice.
My Newest Obsession
After watching Laura on GBBO I followed her on Instagram. I quickly fell in love with her honesty and her realness with loving her body just the way it is. Once I saw her post about her new podcast I subscribed. I LOVE her friendship with Lauren. Their spark is what makes this podcast so good. But their discussions have completely made me rethink my body and how I see myself. Like how everything is marketed to people that hate something about themselves. Crazy!! I love discussing their episodes with my partner. Love you girls!
