In this episode, I welcome Roni Manor, a young activist on a mission to help others learn to love and take care of themselves. We discuss the harmful impact of fatphobia and how to create change on a personal and societal level. One “aha” moment is when Roni points out how our culture finds certain behaviors like smoking disgusting, but when it comes to weight bias we find the person disgusting instead of the perceived behavior. We explore everything from weight bias and morality to body positivity and doctors who assume everything is tied to weight. Don’t miss this fascinating and inspiring episode!
