My Trip to Fad Camp

My Trip to Fad Camp

When I got the invitation to be a guest on the Fad Camp podcast , which deals with diet culture through comedy, I couldn't agree to be a guest fast enough. As the cherry on top of this fabulous fat cake, several years ago I got a chance to visit Ireland and I fell in love with the place. Since I'm not traveling right now for COVID reasons, that made it an extra treat to sit down with the fabulous Grace - if I can't be in Ireland, at least she can!

Our episode covers topics from fat liberation in general, to the problem with actors in fat suits, to fat athletes and the bullshit of the good fatty/bad fatty dichotomy, and more.


Between in-person and online family gatherings, work parties, New Years bashes, New Years Resolution, and a ton of diet ads... the holiday season can be a perfect storm of fatphobia. Plus this year all the talk of COVID-related body changes adds another layer of nonsense All that diet culture can really get you down. In this workshop we'll talk about tips, tricks, and techniques to help us deal and have a happy holiday season on our own terms - whether we celebrate any holidays or not.
