Episode 247: Donner Party Reject

So, I’m hesitant to publish the last 15 minutes or so of the podcast. Sometimes it seems kind of strange, and maybe even self-indulgent, to talk specifically about fat experiences.  That said, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read things about fat folks being, essentially, afraid of doing everyday stuff. Afraid of showing their arms, afraid of going to the pool, afraid of going to the doctor, afraid of not fitting into an activity, and, well, it just breaks my heart, and sometimes that heartbreak manifests itself in these moments of what is maybe “too much.” If you think it’s too much, I am glad! It means you don’t need to hear that message. Hooray! But I”m leaving it in, because somebody else might.
