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!
