159: Anti-Fat Bias in the Workplace
What is it like to be fat in the workplace? I asked you to share your stories and I will be sharing the stats. Is there a difference in how fat men vs fat women are perceived and treated? And how much distinction do we see between smaller fat people and larger fat people? We have some pretty jaw-dropping stories of weight bias in the workplace and so if that’s not feeling good for you today skip the second half of the show.

158: Fatness as a Disease and “Ob*sity” Medicine’s Giant Flaws
There has been a shift in recent years to embrace fatness as a disease and in fact, the American Medical Association did do just that in 2013, against advice from many experts. Is the premise of larger body sizes as inherently “diseased” helpful? What about “ob*sity” doctors who advocate for the use of a person's first language? Is that shift going to end the stigma for fat people? Let’s talk about it!

157: Intergenerational Food Trauma
What did you learn from the people who raised you about food and weight? How did their caregivers talk to them about diets and fatness? Today we have a super VIP special guest; my Mum! We talk about The Great Starvation (Irish Potato Famine), and British colonialism and look at research on trauma passed down the generations. Even if you don't come from a family that experienced something similar, day-to-day trauma around food and size can be incredibly impactful for many generations.

155: Part 1: Is Wegovy/Ozempic the Miracle Weight Loss Drug It’s Made Out to Be?
Have you noticed this new craze where influencers and celebs are taking diet drugs, specifically Ozempic/Wegovy? Well if you haven’t then you’re one of the lucky ones! This drug is being touted as “game-changing”, a “miracle” and the “end of ob*sity.” But is it? In this 1st episode of 2, we go into the actual science behind the drug, the clinical trial outcomes and who is the company behind manufacturing the drug…and the hype.

147: What if You Want to Support a Fat Person to Lose Weight?

147: What if You Want to Support a Fat Person to Lose Weight?
We have a special episode today which is for the loved ones of fat folks who are worried about their health or want them to lose weight. I am going to be talking directly to the people who deeply care about a fat person and may say or think something like “I don’t quite understand why they don’t eat in a certain way or stick to a diet when they know it could have negative impacts on their health.” If you know someone who could benefit from hearing about weight science, and the impacts that living in a fat body has on fat individuals with personal stories then tune in and share. TW: mention of The “o words” and weight in pounds, I also read advice columns from people wanting their spouse to lose weight and that can be hard to hear.

145: Legends That Fatphobia Stole
TW: Fatphobia/diet culture leading to death. I am talking about famous people who had overwhelming pressure to be thin and died trying or their life was damaged because of that. I am also talking about the idea that fatphobia caused or deeply contributed to them being unalive. It’s a pretty tough episode so please skip if you need to.
