ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Aaron and Glenys are excited to welcome to the podcast Jes Baker, author of the books Landwhale and Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls: A Handbook for Unapologetic Living. Jes Baker is a positive, progressive, and magnificently irreverent force to be reckoned with in the realm of self-love advocacy and mental health. She is internationally known for preaching the importance of body liberation, hard conversations, strong coffee, and even stronger language. Jes burst onto the body image scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types - a move that landed her on the Today Show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives. In this fantastic episode, she tells us about her revelation that she hadn't been a fat child, turning insults into cool nicknames, and how talking about mental health can be healing.
