    Why should I give fat positivity a try?

    “Isn’t it cool how asses come in so many different sizes?” In this episode, Dr. Rachel Milner talks to Zoë about what it means to be fat-positive. Through personal and clinical examples they discuss the protective benefits of raising fat-positive children and how to break the cycle of intergenerational weight-related trauma once and for all. Zoë and Rachel offer practical strategies to help you talk to your kids about fat-positivity in a fat-phobic society, navigate awkward moments on the playground, and give you a bonus deep dive into the unique challenges of treating anorexia in fat people (yes, that's a real thing).

    How can we change the conversation around weight-based teasing?

    This week we’re joined by Jessica Saunders, a feminist trained developmental scientist working to promote positive developmental outcomes across the lifespan and identify ways that negative body experiences can be improved.  We discuss the effect of weight-based teasing in school and how teachers are unprepared to have these conversations with students. But who teaches the teachers? Listeners will learn about Jessica’s research on the Comprehensive School Health Approach and how we can work towards weight-neutral health promotion.
