Welcome to the second 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.
Cat and Saraya check in on Twin Cities events during The Fat Dish, talk with their first guest interviewee Zoe Hollomon about her story as a matter of fat, and dive into the Dirt and Discourse. This episode originally aired August 1st 2018.
In the Fat Dish and our interview, the gals talk about the local synchronized swimming team Subversive Sirens and how they will be participating in the Gay Games in Paris from August 6th, 7th, and 8th. Zoe also referenced a tank top that has a wonderful Audre Lorde quote. Check out them rocking the tanks in link below.
Fattitude the movie will be screened on August 19th. It’s being hosted by the Radical Health Alliance at the Marcus Theater in Oakdale.
Minnesota primary elections will be held on August 14th. There are many ways to get your vote in! The MN Secretary of State is a good place to start with any questions.
Cake Plus Size Resale is hosting a Fat Splash Pool Party on Saturday, August 12th. It’ll be a great way to celebrate summer and have a good time.
The Gamut Gallery will be holding the Dangerous Fatty event on August 25th that will have fat community art and Virgie Tovar will be doing a reading from her new book You Have the Right to Remain Fat.
Netflix’s Insatiable was the focus of this week’s Dirt + Discourse. More than 200,000 people have now signed the change.org petition to cancel the release of the show. Vulture has a quick review of what we covered.
