Abby gives her take on the controversy around the recent New York Times article that cited performers' weight gain as an impediment to Broadway reopening. Then she is joined by plus model and actress Clare Rea (she/her). They discuss the difference between entertainment industry fat and real life fat, Clare's appearance in Seventeen Magazine, Katy Perry's Firework, giving up dieting, BFA programs, body positivity, being a fat dancer, and the importance of interrogating your attitude toward your own body size. Also dropping today is Abby's guest episode on the podcast Playdate where she and hosts Kait and Julia discuss the play Fat Pig. Head to the More Than Tracy Turnblad Instagram to see baby Clare in Seventeen!
