Being Fat on Radio National

This morning, Radio National’s Life Matters program focussed on cultural attitudes to fat.  I was invited in as a guest along with the wonderful Dr Cat Pause, and eating disorders specialists Professor Cynthia Bulik and Professor Stephen Touyz.

While I don’t agree with everything that was said on the program (when will that fat-is-the-last-acceptable-prejudice meme die? And can we please get over shaming-fatties-for-their-own-good already?), I think the overall program was really positive.  It was great to have some non-fatties talking about how diets don’t work.

You can listen here (though be warned, there’s some concern-trolling from the callers).
