[Repost] #195: Why Fatphobia Hurts All of Us with Sofie Hagen, Comedian and Author of "Happy Fat”

Food Psych Podcast with Christy Harrison

Comedian, author, and fellow podcaster Sofie Hagen joins us to discuss her new book, Happy Fat; how fatphobia affects people of all sizes; why health isn’t a matter of individual responsibility (and why framing it as one is oppressive); how science often gets twisted by diet culture and the media, and so much more! Plus, Christy answers a listener question about how to define “health” outside of diet culture. (This episode originally aired on April 29, 2019.) Sofie Hagen is a stand-up comedian, author, podcaster, fat activist and blogger. A modern legend in her native Denmark, Sofie burst onto the British comedy scene by winning Best Newcomer at Edinburgh Festival 2015. Her 2016 follow-up, Shimmer Shatter, was a second total sell-out, which followed again with another sellout show in 2017, Dead Baby Frog. Sofie has spoken to millions as host of her successful Made of Human podcast, as well as Secret Dinosaur Cult and Comedians Telling Stuff. Her first book, Happy Fat, is published in the UK by 4th Estate on May 2, 2019. Find her online at SofieHagen.com.

Goofing Off with Sofie Hagen

She's All Fat: A Fat Positive Podcast

In this episode, we’re hanging out AKA goofing off with comedian and Happy Fat, Sofie Hagen!CALL TO ACTION: Pool your pocket ChangeFrom Sr. Producer Lynn: My friend Josie Naron has been pooling donations to a huge variety of organizations and activists doing anti-racist, anti-incarceration, and housing justice work. The idea is “pocket change,” like one dollar here, five dollars there, and then Josie pools all those small contributions together to make one significant donation to that day’s org. Even if you can’t donate to every pool, you can follow the orgs, you can pass along the pooling info; people have even been just tagging twitter celebs to retweet the pools and get more donations. It’s really cool.” Follow Josie @nosiejaron on Twitter for daily updates on ongoing and past pools, and join the TinyLetter for more information! Click here for the full shownotes for this episode.

Sofie Hagen on fat activism and taking up space in a fatphobic world

History Becomes Her

Sofie Hagen is a Danish comedian who co-created the Guilty Feminist podcast with Deborah Frances White. Hagen is non-binary and uses pronouns she/they/he. Hagen is a fat acceptance campaigner and plus size fashion designer, who speaks candidly about our culture’s ingrained anti-fat bias and the subtle and overt ways society continues to marginalise and discriminate against fat people. In this episode of History Becomes Her, Hagen discusses her admiration for civil rights activist Rosa Parks. Hagen also shares how she got started in the fat acceptance movement and how people can unlearn their ingrained anti-fat bias. In her book Happy Fat Hagen writes about the reality of being fat in a world that wants you to take up less space. She talks about being spat on and having someone tell her, “if you weren’t so fat, I’d rape you.” Hagen wants to reclaim the word “fat” and live in a world built on self-acceptance and loving your body.Please subscribe, rate, and review. Find us on Twitter and Instagram: @HBHPod.
