Ep 165 - The Importance of Diverse Bodies in the Media with Actress Melanie Field

Welcome to How to Love Your Body today we have a special guest - actress, singer and activist Melanie Field.

You may recognize her from shows like You, The Alienist: Angel of Darkness and Shrill, yes Shrill and even more importantly creator of the powerful song and music video “Now I Know”, which we will play at the end of this episode so if you want to have a good cry we highly recommend you stay tuned for that.

Questions asked in this episode:

Tell us the story behind the song Now I Know, what is it about, and why did you feel the need to make it.

What has the reaction been to the song?

Do you have any insights after hearing from so many people resonating with the song?

Discuss how we were talking about the body acceptance movement, anti fat bias etc - we need EVERYONE on board to make a difference. 

WHILE also recognizing thin privilege, of COURSE but if the people with the privilege are happy how things are things won’t change.

Listen to Melanie's FULL song, "Now I know" at the end of this podcast episode.
