Guess who's back?
In which we drop the MEGA announcement and pretend we didn't disappear for 6 months
We’re back! I know, I know, but we are, really. So much has happened in the past few months, and we’ve been so busy we didn’t even want to talk about dropping season 3 until we had it all down. Welll, we do now! And so, without any further ado, allow me to tell you that the Fat. So? Podcast is BACK FOR SEASON THREE THIS SATURDAY!
Save the date, mark your calendars, hop on over to Instagram and set a reminder from our stories, so you don’t miss the very first episode of this season that has been a long time coming.
When we decided it was time to invite other people to tell us their stories, we made a wish list of people. We said to ourselves, yeah of course this is aiming so high, but what have we got to lose by asking. Imagine our sheer delight when every single one of the big hitters in the fat liberation world, at home and abroad, agreed to come and talk to us! And so we had many weeks of fangirling and and deep emotions and many feels, so we can finally bring you this season.
And so, let me please tell you, with all the drumrolls and fanfares there are, that our very first guest in season 3 of the podcast is none other than brilliant photographer, pathbreaker, inspiration and all round goddess Substantia Jones! I mean I cannot begin to tell you what it meant to hear back from her and have her join and stand in her light for that recording. For me, personally, as a photographer, her work taught me to see differently, and her life offers a model for my own that I didn’t think could exist. But I shall stop here and you can get all the gushing on Saturday, when the episode drops.
In other news, I have moved out of Delhi, while Pallavi remains there. It’s interesting readjusting to not being around each other all the time, but we’ve done it before, so we can do it again. I am absolutely loving Bangalore, though keenly missing both Akhilesh my trainer, and Rafuddin masterji my tailor :(
The knees are getting better with excellent physio. Now I have a cane I walk around a lot and the more I move, the less pain I have. I even went to a cousin’s wedding and met vast numbers of relatives with my cane. Of course everyone asked what happened, but I simply said I have an injury and it’s getting better. It’s amazing, once more, how chill people are when you are matter of fact about your needs.
I shall leave you now with the promise that there will be an episode every two weeks, and there might even be a newsletter every two weeks, but most of all, the fatsos are always here for you.
Ameya (& Pallavi)
