In part two of my conversation with academic and activist Dr. Oli Williams, we discuss the work he does via his art collective, Act With Love. The mission of AWL is to translate Oli's research from complex ideas on weight stigma and inequality into artwork that conveys a simple message. In this 'sode we cover:

✨How health is not defined by weight ✨ The problem with using BMI as a measure of health ✨ How weight stigma worsens health outcomes ✨ The moralisation of bodies ✨ Weight bias in the medical community ✨ The lived experience of ‘obesity’ ✨ Social movements and resistance
