More Than Tracy Turnblad
Destabilizing the Anti-Fat Lens with Sarah Shear aka Princess Scissors
Show Notes

It's almost Halloween, so of course we had to talk about horror movies this week! Abby is too afraid to watch them, so she brings on her childhood friend Lauren Kelley to do an investigation into fatphobia in body horror. (This is the closest More Than Tracy Turnblad will ever get to being a true crime podcast.) Then, Sarah Shear aka Princess Scissors, a creative artist and body activist based in London, joins Abby to talk about body neutrality as performance practice, activism vs. acceptance, being an ex-pat, weight changes in theatre school, making her own work, glitter, Ophelia, and America's obsession with physical perfection.
