Just a Quickie: Two Whole Cakes Fatcast

Published May 4, 2010 by Fat Heffalump

Haven’t got a lot of blog time tonight, but I really, really wanted to share something with you all.

Marianne Kirby of The Rotund and Leslie Kinzel of Fatshionista have got together and started podcasting with Two Whole Cakes: Fatcast.

I have listened to the first two so far and can highly recommend them for those of you within the fatosphere and those of you who want to know more about the fatosphere and fat acceptance, be you a Fatty McFatterson yourself or not.

Marianne and Leslie get right down into it quick sticks, and talk about the politics of fat acceptance, their experiences and their thoughts on where the movement is going and in fact has been.  But they do so with bucketloads of fun, good grace and humour.  I have discovered that I can’t listen to the podcasts on the bus because people stare at the giggling fat lady!  Yet I also found myself nodding along in agreement and a few lightbulbs going off as the ladies articulate things I have been unable to.

If you follow this link, you will be able to download the podcasts or subscribe via iTunes, and can see the notes and links the ladies have mentioned in the podcasts as well.

Well, what are you waiting for?

  • I’m not even fat but I looove this podcast! It’s so informative and useful, and funny too. For anyone that comes into the fatosphere and is confused bout what it’s all about, this could be very beneficial to. I mean, I know they said that they don’t speak for everyone in the entire fatosphere, but it’s still gives some really great perspective.

    • That’s fantastic Ashley – what I really like seeing is people who are outside the fatosphere being able to get some perspective and understanding on a lot of the things that they wouldn’t normally ever have to consider. Fat acceptance isn’t just for fat people, it’s for everyone.

      They have some fantastic perspectives and are articulate in expressing them. Plus as you say, really funny. I have giggled lots. I will be blogging more on subjects they have raised.
