Episode Description

What is the other "F" word? Simple: it's Fat. And if you think fat can’t be funny, think again. Emmy award-winning comedian Ian Karmel and his sister Alisa grew up fat. As kids, they never talked about it. As Ian puts it, they were too busy fighting over the last SnackWell’s Devil’s Food cookie. Now, decades later, having figured out how to get their health under control, they are finally ready to unpack the impact that their weight has had on them. Ian and Alisa will join me on this episode to discuss their new book, The T-Shirt Swim Club: Stories of Being Fat in a World of Thin People. For these siblings, the T-Shirt Swim Club is a place of support for anyone who struggles with weight issues. A place of care and candor, free of shame. Want to join the club? Listen to this episode for a thoughtful and humorous discussion about how the world treats fat people—and why it doesn’t always have to feel so lonely.
