The Fat Lip is a podcast for and about fat people.

In some ways fat people are living in a different world than our thin and average-sized peers. Our lives and our experiences are influenced by our fatness all the time, but the outside reactions to fatness can really f**k us up. On a daily basis we are exposed to media that tells us that we’re not worthy of representation and a multi-billion dollar diet industry that is happy to take our money (for products that are proven to not work) while barely disguising its disgust at our very existence. It’s gross, and we’re over it.

TFL strives to be fat positive in a world that often isn’t. We are proud supporters of radical self-love and the fierce defense of your body autonomy. Fat is not an indicator of health or fitness, and health and fitness aren’t moral imperatives anyway. You don’t have to justify your body or your health to anyone!

On The Fat Lip, you an expect frank discussion of fat issues in popular media, exploration of fatphobia as it intersects with other forms of oppression, real stories about living, working, and dating in a fat body, big serious topics like the politics of the "obesity epidemic" and tiny fun topics like fatshion and snacks. Plus a whole lot more!

Intersectional Fat Podcast

I really appreciate the conversations about taking up space, but also sharing space with other minority groups. Everyone’s liberation is intertwined! ❤️

A fantastic and informative podcast!

As a husband that loves his plus size wife, I/we are always looking for information, encouragement and acceptance for the plus size community. Ash has all of that in one podcast! We thank you for all that you do and please don’t let the hateful words on some of these reviews sink in. You are doing a great service for all plus size, supersize and infinafats everywhere. Thank you from the plus size community and all the husbands that love them!

Good Content, Bad Audio

The content is really good, especially if you’re a fat who sometimes doesn’t know how to navigate the world. That being said, however, the audio quality is absolutely terrible. I had to stop listening to the newest episode about fears because I could only understand maybe every 4th word that the guest said.
