For Your Ears: Dear Sugar


Do you guys listen to “Dear Sugar?”  This show, hosted by Cheryl Strayed (”Wild”) and Steve Almond (”Candyfreak”), answers questions of all shapes and sizes.  The last one talks about the issues of body image + relationships.

From their site:

The Sugars explore the fraught relationship between body image and romance.

In one letter, a married woman reconsiders her priorities after losing 100 pounds. In another, a young man wants his girlfriend to lose weight, but does not understand why she’s so upset when he broaches the subject.

They’re joined by the writer Lindy West, who has much to say on what it means to be a fat woman in our society.
