Episode Date
589: Tell Me I’m Fat

With one-third of Americans classified as overweight, and another third as obese, and almost none of us losing weight and keeping it off, maybe it’s time to rethink the way we see being fat. A show inspired by Lindy West’s book Shrill.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
