In this episode, I talk with my good friend Feliks about growing up with his sister and mother, fat bodies, body positivity, and masculinity. We laughed a lot – for instance, I was very tickled with the idea of teenage abdominal six-packs. Enjoy!
In this episode, I talk to journalist and sex worker, Susan Shepard. We discuss many topics, including: writing about sex, strip club audiences, the nature of performance in the sex work context, body image, boobs, and vaginas. Fun talk with lots of interesting tidbits.
For the 5th episode, I interviewed Professor of English and Women’s and Gender Studies at UT Austin, Ann Cvetkovich. Many topics are discussed: Ann’s research, including her book, “Depression: A Public Feeling;” conceptions of embodiment, including bridging the gap between academia and real world experience; and reconciling the idea of depression as something both private and public.

In this episode, I talked with Dr. Snehal Shingavi, an activist and professor of literature at UT Austin. We discuss various topics, including weight fluctuations, Islamophobia, Gandhi, and teaching.
In the 2nd short and sweet episode of The BodPod, I chat with twin 7 (almost 8!) year olds, Bodhi and Mazzy. This was a lot of fun and I was very pleased they wanted to talk about butts and farts so much.
Welcome to the BodPod, the podcast where you talk about your body!
In this introductory episode of The BodPod, I talk to writer, editor, foodie, cyclist, and all-around cool human, Meghan McCarron. We talk about things like weird bodies, queerness, and cycling. In Part 2, we discuss bodies in the context of Spike Jonze’s “Her.” Enjoy!
