    Is She....Letting Herself Go??

    Is She....Letting Herself Go??

    Warning: This episode discusses body image, disordered eating, and other complex relationships with food and exercise. Please take care while listening.
    This is Danielle's first solo episode in over three years. However, the response she's gotten to some more recent episodes in which she gets very vulnerable about body image and the all-consuming aspects of trying to attain a certain physique, made it clear to her that she needed to dig deeper into the topic by herself before tackling the the subject with Adam. Danielle discusses everything from what she was told about her weight growing up, to the numerous diet plans she's tried (and failed), to her biggest fears regarding body acceptance. This episode is raw, emotional, and will most likely be relatable to many who have endured the shame and scrutiny caused by diet culture. What does she want Adam (and so many partners) to understand? How does she want to live her life from this point forward? What struggles have exhausted her emotionally and physically? It's all in this episode. Listen, and then send it to someone else who might need a little more self-love and to feel less alone.

    Permission to Have Hard Conversations, With Jo Piazza

    Permission to Have Hard Conversations, With Jo Piazza

    In this episode, Danielle sat down with author, journalist, and podcaster Jo Piazza, to talk all about the importance of hard conversations in relationships (romantic and platonic) and why we need to stop avoiding them. The two of them discuss Jo's new book, We Are Not Like Them, which Jo co-wrote with her friend, Christine Pride. The story follows tan interracial friendship which is tested in many ways when one of their husbands (a police officer), shoots a black teenage boy. Danielle asks Jo all about the writing process and how nerve-wracking it must have been to tackle such an intensely polarizing topic. They also discuss why this was such a topic to explore head on no matter how uncomfortable, and how the timing played a huge role. Danielle and Jo also talk about Jo's podcast, Under The Influence, and how Jo is now delving into the complexities of social media and how it affects women especially, and why these platforms are such a mixture of positives and negatives. According to Jo, we need to talk about all of these truths in society, no matter how much it makes us nervous and uncomfortable. You do not need to have read Jo Piazza's books or listened to her podcasts to enjoy this episode. However, after listening, we're pretty sure you'll want to.

Is She Letting Herself Go?

I follow your page on Instagram and have listened to a few of your podcasts. I have been working from home since the pandemic started, so I haven’t had much time in the car commuting to listen to podcasts as much as I normally would. However, when I saw that you were speaking on this topic, I felt compelled to listen. Since about 12 years old, I have been on some sort of eating plan or diet or some type of restriction. Growing up I watched my mom do all the things diet wise and then at the age of 12, I was signed up for Weight Watchers. I could relate so much to all of the things that you shared in this podcast. When the pandemic started, everyday I would say, this is the day I will be perfect on my eating and lose so much weight. Then when I didn’t meet that expectation, I would be consumed with guilt and shame and end the evening in tears. I have a young daughter that I want to be an example for and not have her experience these type of struggles in regard to diet culture. I am in a place of privilege where I have been able to talk to a therapist and work through so many things many being the same struggle you have dealt with. I am so proud of you for being able to share your story and your struggles. I will be sharing this episode with some friends and family so that I can tell them, “this, this is how I have felt, and I am done with the harshness to my body and I am going to “let myself go”, go and enjoy all of the things that life has to offer and not be so consumed with being smaller.” Thank you for sharing.
