The Doctor, Part 1
In this episode, Marianne and I discuss The Doctor — the medical doctor, not the kind with the TARDIS — and some of the common pitfalls of being a fat person seeking quality preventative care. We also talk about why it’s important to learn to advocate for yourself and your health in the doctor’s office.
Fatcast is currently being featured on iTunes as a New and Noteworthy podcast! Swell!
We’re still hashing out the sound (i.e. Marianne needs a NASA headset), and Skype was being a jerk for this one, but we’re seeing improvements! Thanks so much for all the excellent props and support.
