This week’s podcast is a doozy. Amy went to a wedding in Boston and Paula went to see drag queens (natch).

Let’s play catch up, shall we?

In late spring, the brain trust that is We Are Still Hungry, Inc. made a strategic decision to scale back on this site. When we compared site visits to the time it took to create the posts, it was an easy decision.

But it was never our intention to have our site filled with cobwebs so allow us to present all the episodes we’ve missed. From now on, we’ll tell ya each time we have an episode.

Paula went to the Tax March and saw everyone’s Auntie Maxine Waters. We also discuss Mama June’s physical transformation. The Fatphobic Disaster of the Week is Cosmopolitan Magazine’s promotion of a weightloss program based on having cancer. The Body Positivity Win of the Week is a documentary called “The Student Body”.

Episodes 30 and 31: Falling into Your Cracks 52 Times

Those of you who rely on the site to listen to the podcast are extremely vocal when you can’t get to your preshus new episodes. But sometimes life takes over and creating these blog posts when 99% of our listeners use a podcast subscription can be pushed to the back burner. So, our compromise is to combine episodes for this site.

Thus, I present to you, Episode 30: So Stuff Doesn’t Fall Into Your Cracks and 31: FIFTY TWO TIMES.

Thanks for listenin’, y’all! Stay hungry.

This segment should be called “The Womb of Our Desire”.

HALF of the country thinks it should be a law for women to take their husbands’ name.

Read this bullshit.

Paula breaks the shocking news that telling kids that they are obese fills them with shame and then they gain weight, because DIETING CAUSES OBESITY AND EATING DISORDERS. Here, read this goddamn research report.

Paula goes on the most perfect rant about the psychology of fatness and thinness and PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS! This is a better rant than in Episode 8: It’s Not About You.

This bears repeating.

Pound Not My President Donald Trump gave bullshit remarks at a breakfast for Black History Month. He sounds like a child whose English is his second language.

Here’s an excerpt:

black-history

For the record, not all African Americans live in the inner city, the inner city is not a terrible place, African American communities are, in fact, amazing places filled with great people and not a cause for Trump’s fake-ass concern, and Trump is real dumb and racist.

Mike Pence is also real dumb and racist. They should suck all the colors of the dicks.

How Taylor Swift Played the Victim and Made Her Entire Career by Ellie Woodward

It all began with Kanye running up on stage and saying, “Imma let you finish,” which was a crazy person move, but played into America’s fear of the Angry Black Man.

We’re on to you, Tay-Tay. The poor little white girl thing is real tired.

  • Turn off your TV & computer
  • Learn about EVERYTHING
  • Remind yourself WHY you’re trying to save the world
