More Than Tracy Turnblad

Abby Rose Morris

Body size diversity in entertainment is an issue that often goes unspoken or ignored by the artistic community, but is deeply felt by those who (literally) don't fit into the ideal. On this podcast, Abby Rose Morris interviews fat people in all areas of entertainment about where fatphobia shows up in their artistic lives, the fat characters that have impacted them, and the changes they would like to see regarding the treatment of body size in the arts. Join us as we challenge stereotypes of fat bodies, honor the power of representation, and dream of how entertainment can evolve to become more inclusive.
