I'm here for body-positivity at all times. That means no more judging myself for over-indulging on the weekends and comparing myself to anyone else.
I just need more folks like me, talking about this skin suits we're all respectively wearing and how it feels to be outside of the mainstream beauty standards.
Body-positive podcasts are an excellent way to get that perspective. We've compiled a list of simply the best (better than all the rest) for your listening enjoyment!
Bad Fat Broads is a podcast hosted by two friends, Ariel and KC. Both Ariel and KC are fat-acceptance activists and all-around badasses. A refreshing voice in the era of Trump, both women discuss queer issues, reproductive rights and spirituality with an easy, non-judgmental air.

There are few comedians as delightful as Nicole Byer. I'd go so far as to say, she's in fact my favorite comedian, and as such, her podcast is one that I listen to upon entering my podcast queue. I simply can't wait. Waiting would be rude to her and myself.
She's a fat woman. She's a hilarious woman. And she's single. She's my best friend (in my mind).

Stuff Mom Never Told You dives deep into the topics your mom would've been too embarrassed to chat with you about — including body image, relationships, and health — in an honest way. But that's exactly why it's so fun. We all need safe spaces, and this is a safe space that's also funny.
You might've come across 2 Dope Queens via their HBO special — but if you're not listening to their weekly live comedy podcast, you're missing out. It features hilarious — but very real — conversations with diverse actors and comedians about bodies, race, hair, dating, life in New York, and Billy Joel. Subscribe and do yourself a favor.
I'd be hard-pressed not to throw Oprah into any list I was writing about feeling good about yourself. So, why fight myself?
Supersoul Conversations is brilliant. Oprah has talked to some of the most important leaders in wellness and spirituality: Maya Angelou, Brene Brown and The Rock (my personal fave). She goes deep into eating and the way we treat ourselves through food. Nourishing and feel-good, it's at the top of my queue for sure.
Our girl, Josie Ong, is for the people. Her Affirmation Pod is short and sweet and full of calming reassurance to ease the self-doubt we torment ourselves with.
Her messages are clear and concise. "I am enough" and "My normal is not your normal" are compassionate reminders that our lives are ours to live. Check out Affirmation Pod right here.
Hosted by Crissle and Kid Fury, The Read is for your mind and soul. The namesake "read" is at the very end of the podcast where the hosts give an impassioned criticism of their idiot of the week, be it AT&T or Donald Trump. The two friends stan hard for Beyonce and cut down misogyny and shaming at every chance they get. Check it out here.
Anti-dieting and feminism in one lovely Canadian podcast? Yes, please!
Summer Innanen is the host of FRR, and as the title suggests she gets a little rebellious. For Innanen, "diet culture is punitive" and it works to belittle certain bodies. YES QUEEN. She works on self-worth from the ground up, not the outside in. After two minutes listening to Fearless Rebelle Radio I thought to myself, "she gets it." No matter where you are in your body positivity journey, she'll help you get it, too.
Paige Smathers, host of Nutrition Matters, has one of those voices that is so soothing you KNOW she's full of wisdom. And she is. Paige advocates for intuitive eating, and the Nutrition Matters podcast is a window into balanced eating that many — including myself — have struggled with. Subscribe here.
