Episode 3: Simeon Talley (Flyover Fest)

Episode 3: Simeon Talley (Flyover Fest)

Welcome to the third episode of Matter of Fat: a body positive podcast with Midwest sensibilities! Co-hosts Cat Polivoda and Saraya Boghani highlight community voices with a lens on body size, body positivity, & fat liberation.

We check in on upcoming Twin Cities events during The Fat Dish, talk with our guest Simeon Talley  about his background and story as a matter of fat, and dive into the Dirt and Discourse.

In the Fat Dish, Saraya is still in a daze after seeing Jay Z and Beyonce’s On The Run Tour II and is excited to learn more about radio broadcasting and sound engineering.  Cat shares her eager anticipation for Cake Plus Size Resale’s Fat Splash pool party and hints at a saucy promo photo shoot with Boudoir by Eve.

Also in the Fat Dish, Cat mentions that Button Poetry is putting on a spoken word event featuring Rachel Wiley on August 26th at Icehouse in Minneapolis and Saraya mentions the Dangerous Fatty community art event and book reading by Virgie Tovar on August 25th at Gamut Gallery.

This episode’s interview is with Simeon Talley, who is the Chief Connector and Event Producer with the content and event platform Flyover based in Iowa City, Iowa.  Simeon shares his background and how he came to curate platforms for underrepresented and marginalized voices through fashion, politics, culture. You can check out Simeon’s TED Talk and the Medium article by Kiva Bay

We explore definitions in the Dirt and Discourse this episode! Saraya’s mom has a question on our use of the term “intersectionality”. You don't have to pull out that Oxford English Dictionary or scour Merriam-Webster's website.   We break down the definition but you can also learn more by checking out this primer from the Washington Post and check out a perfect, and unfortunate, example of white feminism with Chelsea Handler’s interview of Ashley Graham.

Many thanks to you for listening and reading, KFAI’s Mason Butler and Sara Pette for engineering and supporting Matter of Fat, Allison Anne Design + Create for our logo, and Kyle Werstein for composing and producing our theme music.
