Andrea Powell: An Epic Badass
In this episode of Big Beautiful Badasses, I am being joined by Andrea Powell.  Andrea is an author, a fellow podcaster, and a friend. Today we are going to be talking about weight stigma and fat representation.  I want you to really think about the television shows that you watched growing up.  How many of them had plus size men and/or women in them.  Very few I would imagine.  We are going to discuss how this lack of representation truly affected how we feel about ourselves.
