Abby Rose Morris

Abby writes a 2015 -The-Odyssey-Online-style verbal open letter to the "I'm-So-Fat Friend," aka that friend who calls themselves fat in front of their larger bodied friends (00:32). Then she is joined by Kimie Muroya, a Philadelphia-based theatre artist (07:56). They discuss the lack of fat Asian representation, being rewarded for disordered eating patterns, asexuality, conscious casting, and getting called "brave" for doing a sex scene. Also, Kimie does a killer Scottish accent!
