    Freedom From Fat?

    Freedom From Fat?

    Who loves receiving cold emails? Not me. But as a business owner I tend to get a few sometimes.

    One of the most recent ones gave me something to chuckle about while simultaneously triggering the mind gremlins telling me bad things.

    Join me as I rant my way through this little story about how words matter, willful misunderstanding, and the power of finding things to laugh about.

    Bring Your Fatness into Your Activism: A Conversation with Desiree Adaway

    Bring Your Fatness into Your Activism: A Conversation with Desiree Adaway

    Y'all. I got to talk to the amazing Desiree Adaway, a powerhouse teacher and consultant I've been following around on the internet for years.
    Get into this conversation where she shares her story, asks us to examine how race first enters our consciousness, tells us how we need to parse people from systems, and talks about why we need to challenge anti-fatness in our liberation spaces.
    And listen all the way to the end to hear why you need fountain pens in your best fat life.

    Going Deep into Food, Race, and Fatness: A Conversation with Patrilie Hernandez

    Going Deep into Food, Race, and Fatness: A Conversation with Patrilie Hernandez

    Continuing on the theme I have decided to declare "Deep Ass Conversations Had Because I Have a Podcast," I recorded with another guest! This one is a part 2 of a chat started months earlier that was too good not to keep it going. Come sit with us as Patrilie and I discuss the politics of food, the experience of looking back at your younger self, and being biracial and all the challenges that come with it.

    Fattening Up Decolonization: A Conversation with Athia Choudhury

    Fattening Up Decolonization: A Conversation with Athia Choudhury

    Hey y'all. You ever meet someone and just know you need to get to know them better? Well, that was exactly the feeling I got when I (virtually) ran into Athia. And thank goodness, because this bright and shiny person is a real gem!
    In this conversation, we get into the writing that made me need to make friends with her, the promise of ascension with the achievement of thinness, and bang the gong for our need and desire to hear all the fatstories. Athia shares so much depth of thought, critical analysis, and candidness around fatness, dieting, being the elephant in the room, and everything in between you can't miss this one.
    May you enjoy listening to it at least as much as I did recording it!
