This week you get to meet the person behind the posts: More Than Tracy Turnblad's social media guru, Maya Ballester (they/she)! First, Abby discusses why nobody moralizes the fatness of animals and how much she hates the word "chonk" (a lot). Then Maya comes on the podcast to talk with Abby about their past diets, childhood trauma, Kelly Clarkson, the origin of fatphobia, what it's like to be thin and fat and thin and fat again, and why Tracy Turnblad is basically Jesus. This episode got very therapy-like as we delved into our fat child trauma, so enjoy our vulnerability but proceed with caution!
*This episode contains potential triggers for eating disorders, including weight and calorie numbers as well as naming of disordered thoughts and behaviors. There is also a brief mention of self-harm/violence.*
