Hold your head high, new episode out!

The navigating of many things and other exciting explorations...

Happy Monday lovely people, 

The Spring equinox has come and gone, the Sun is now in Aries and who knows what exciting movement we will begin to see. Ameya and I are getting our butts in shape—not just with our workouts but also by releasing our first ever reel. FINALLY, given we have been planning (Meya) and procrastinating (P) for almost 6 months! Therefore, definitely check out our Instagram and tell us what you think! Like, comment and share fo’ sure, hee. 

Also while on Instagram check out the trailer for our spanking new episode, “Hold your head high” that went out yesterday evening. Meya’s done a super job of editing an episode that is over 50 minutes long. Turns out that, despite having covered clothes and spaces last season in two separate episodes, we still have a lot to say about them. Especially, when we start talking about how we have learnt to navigate the choppy waters of a fat phobic world. And that’s what the episode is about: our experiences, coping strategies, survival tricks and other tips on how to be a fierce, rad fatty in a world that does not design clothes and spaces for us. 

In case your favourite podcast app did not notify you about the new episode, do make sure you are subscribed to our feed! Also it would help us enormously if you left a review and shared the podcast!

Also out is a new blog post inspired by a conversation I had with Ameya and her friend on how the world seems to be getting more polarised. My take on that is we aren’t accounting for the trauma people experience in breaking out of the mould—have a read and share thoughts! Another blog I revisited was this one and here’s one inspired by Taurus, whom I miss sorely now that I’m away from my parents’ home. 

That’s mostly the round up for this week, except I cannot but mention this fabulous article by Your Fat Friend (anonymous writer on many things fat). It was eye opening, made me furious, validated me and reassured me that we are on the right track with all our work on the podcast. All ingredients of a fabulous read, I say!

Let us know if you enjoy this newsletter? We have plenty of fun getting it out to you. Same with social media, episodes and blogs. Tell us what you like, what you want more of, where we need to apply the brakes and definitely do share our work with others! You can follow us not just on Instagram but also Twitter, Facebook, Medium. We have a website and can be reached on fatsopodcast@gmail.com.

Love and hugs, 

Pallavi (& Ameya)
