[S2] Lindy West: Comedy Helps Us Love Our Bodies

“When everything feels horrible, what tiny detail can we seize on and laugh about.”

Writer Lindy West talks about being fat and being a feminist with an honesty and vulnerability infused with humor. Titles of her essays and books — “My wedding was perfect — and I was fat as hell the whole time” or Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman — get at both the laughter and pain of her journey to body positivity, with poignant insights into the destructive power of comedy.
