Season 2, Episode 4: Talking About Weight Loss In 2017
Weight loss transformation is a powerful idea for many people. It’s not surprising: Media constantly inundates us with the idea that weight loss will dramatically improve our lives. This week on The Bodcast, host Amanda Richards shares her own experience with weight loss transformation (or the idea of it, anyways). We also talk to Ariel Woodson, a fat activist and host of the popular radical fat acceptance podcast, Bad Fat Broads, about the drastic decision she made in pursuit of her own transformation — and why it didn’t work out as she planned.
