    2: A Brief History of Women's Bodies

    2: A Brief History of Women's Bodies

    In this episode of Talking Body, we're looking at some examples throughout history of how women's bodies have been warped, reduced, and reconfigured to suit others. Then, Amy sits down with Dr. Phillippa Diedrichs of the Centre for Appearance Research where she leads a team of researchers at the forefront of understanding body image. She talks us through a ton of questions, and sets a very interesting challenge for Amy by the end of the episode, which we encourage you to take part in as well.

    5: The Weight of Motherhood

    5: The Weight of Motherhood

    This episode is all about motherhood, but you don't have to be a mother to relate to what we're going to talk about here. The pressure to become a mother, to have the right kind of pregnancy, to "bounce back" to your pre-pregnancy weight, to have it all + kids - these are just some of the topics we're going to discuss. Plus, Amy sits down with Kimberly Johnson - doula, bodyworker, and vaginapractor to talk about the disconnect that occurs between women and their bodies before, during, and after childbirth. She also chats with author Angela Garbes about breast milk and her unlikely path toward body activism.

    6: I Want You to Want Me

    Here it is: the sex episode. This week we are digging into all the ways that sex can collide with our body issues like a freight train. Along the way Amy sits down with celebrated sex journalist Tracy Clark-Flory, whose memoir Want Me is a powerful examination of desire versus being desired. And, later in the show, Amy confronts her husband Hobie about secrets she's kept in and out of the bedroom. What he says in response provides a turning point in her search for answers.

3 buoys ,

Wow! Thank you!

I follow your business podcast and found this body and sex episode while researching guests for my own podcast and 💥🙏🏽💥 WOW and thank you for sharing your experience, your vulnerability, and your talk with your husband. I’ve spoken of the hypocrisy of us women needing to be desirable but not desire and it was so validating to have someone who I respect like you, speak to this. And I know your convo with your husband will help my clients with their body talk too (cuz I’m found to share this in my membership to spread the reach). Thank you so much Amy 😘 Susie Pettit

Amy Ammen ,
