HELLO Hungry Babies! We’re so happy you’re here. This episode, the Hungry Women take on a lot. First of all, the country is a literal garbage fire because Justice Kennedy is retiring.

Hiya, hungry kids. This week we mourn the loss of Anthony Bourdain and Amy shares about her friend Amy from amalah.com who tried to end her life. It was a gut punch.

The Fat-phobic Disaster, isn’t reallllly a disaster, but more of a question: Is body positivity a scam? What about body neutrality?

The Fatphobic Disaster is an insane article alleging that a dirty house can make you fat. The Body Poltics Win is the show Dietland.
The FUSBPHHTDWTW is that white people are still calling 911 on black people. Sigh.
Note: Hiya, Amy here. I would like to make a public apology/acknowledgement for making an assumption about Nigerian folks. I assumed that someone from Nigeria is “super duper black”. This is problematic for a few reasons…First of all, I meant to say that I assumed his skin was super duper dark. The phrase “super duper black” taken out of context is horrifying. Secondly, Nnamaeka, friend and producer, graciously checked me on this assumption. He says, “It’s a common mistake, but not all people from Africa are dark. Nigeria, like many other nations in Africa, has the highest genetic diversity in the world. You can find people as light as Alicia Keys (my mom’s side of the family) to dark as Lupita Nyongo (my dad’s side of the family”.) I’m sorry for my mistake but very glad I have the opportunity to apologize for it.
RIP Kate Spade. Let’s learn how to talk about suicide, okay?
Recommendations are Netflix’s Ibiza and Evil Genius and the book The Girl Who Smiled Beads.
