Episode Twelve: Kath Barbadoro

In this episode, I talk with stand-up comedian Kath Barbadoro. We run the gamut of body talk: fatness, childhood, dieting, exposing ourselves to positive images of fatness (expands to other less conventional representations of bodies) in the media, sex, dating, reflecting on our desires, fashion, and our bloody, monthly flows. Kath has great advice for anyone struggling with body image: stop weighing yourself! We also touch on an experience of sexual assault she had at 19 years old, and how she’s tried to process it over the years. We have fun moments, serious ones, and try to speak as directly and raw as we can about these topics. 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.
