All About Bodies w/@FatBodyPolitics — #KatieSpeakShow Ep39 06/04/2016

In brief: The awesome “scholar, writer, activist, and unapologetic fat lady” Amanda Levitt of Fat Body Politics is on to discuss the specific way that bodies of various sizes are shamed and policed in our culture. It’s a conversation too few are having and I’m grateful she was willing to come on and have it!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
