This week on the pod Laura's speaking to Poorna Bell - journalist, author + badass.

In this episode they discuss:

✨ The impact of the messages we hear about our bodies whilst growing up ✨ How oppressive diet culture + all of it's subcultures are, in that they're designed to keep us physically + metaphorically small ✨ The amount of time, money + energy that goes into the mental arithmetic of food + exercise preoccupation, and what amazing stuff that could be used for instead ✨ How finding powerlifting helped Poorna to start feeling grounded within her body ✨ The power can be found in embodiment + viewing our bodies as vessels rather than ornaments
