In brief: Hey, y’all! I’m thrilled to have FINALLY connected on air with progressive radio host and community organizer badass Vida Starr. In the first of our two-part conversation we talk about the connection between trauma and health/weight — a link that’s amazingly rarely made. We get personal and she goes hard at harmful tropes/stereotypes that keep us isolated, sick, and full of self-blame.
