Episode Overview

The word “fat” can be used as a noun, adjective, or a verb and can be seen and heard in a variety of contexts but so often there are negative stigmas, myths, and cultural biases attached to the word fat. In today’s episode with fat and body positive advocate, Bethany Bellingham we discuss the implications of the common connotations we see associated with the word “fat” and the harmful effects of living in a fatphobic culture.

My Morning Coffee Date 

Especially in 2020, having a little positivity is so important. Every time I listen to this podcast, not only do I have a smile on my face, I discover something about myself. And I consider myself to have a whole hell of a lot of self-awareness to begin with! It's almost cliche to say this now but it truly feels like you're having coffee with girlfriends!
