This week Amy & Paula are all cranked up and have a ton of shit to talk about. Where to start? Amy was in Arkansas and taught her mom a great lesson about thin privilege while shopping. Paula was in Fire Island which she calls a gay pressure cooker. We discuss our feelings and theories about Rumi & Sir Carter. We also tackle the misogyny that is the Rob & Chyna slut shaming and revenge porn debacle. The Fat-Phobic Disaster this week is our (not my) dumb ol’ president and his comments about First Lady Macron. The Fucked-Up Shit deals with the officers who pulled over Florida State Attorney Aramis Ayala. Our recommendations are KESHA KESHA KESHA and Demi Lovato whose new music is the hero we all need.
This week, Amy & Paula discuss the names of Beyonce & Shawn’s children, possibly Rumi & Sir. We’re not convinced. Obviously we have to discuss in depth the season finale of RuPaul’s Season 9. Go Sasha Velour! The fatphobic disaster of the week is Ashley Graham because she put her gorgeous foot in her gorgeous mouth.

The body positive win of the week is Natalie Hage, aka NatalieMeansNice who took down the dickhead Eric who was body-shaming her on a plane.

Our recommendations this week are the postcast Bite, the documentary Private Violence, the movie Wonder Woman, and new music by SuperFruit! Stay hungry, y’all!
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”. The Effed Up Shit is the stories of Nandi and Demetrius. We go on a rant about contouring and self-tanner lotion in the MakeUp Minute. Our recommendations are the documentary Strike a Pose and sweat spray.
This week we celebrate Earth Day and all the different marches in DC. We spend some time chatting about our love for Bravo and whether Scheana has had her jaw shaved. Lady Gaga’s new song The Cure is perfection. During the Fucked Up Shit, we give you an update on the police officers who murdered Alton Sterling, and give you the run down on a dipshit white state senator in Florida who used the n-word around his black colleagues. Our Fat-Phobic Disaster of the Week is the terrible Uber driver, who was “concern trolling” our friend Tess Holiday. Paula defines “body currency” as named by Tess Baker. Paula also had a makeover at Sephora and it was magical. Amy had a ukulele minute. Our recommendations are The OA, The Leftovers Season 3, Missing Richard Simmons, and Damn by Kendrick Lamar.
