UNpodcast 107: UNhealthy (Harriet Brown) @harrietbrown

“What some call health, if purchased by perpetual anxiety about diet, isn’t much better than tedious disease.” – Alexander Pope

Today’s guest is Harriet Brown, writer, magazine editor, and professor of magazine journalism at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. She’s the author of several books, including “Body of Truth: How Science, History, and Culture Drive Our Obsession with Weight–and What We Can Do About It.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why health is more complicated than “fat is bad, thin is good”
  • How shame makes us prone to more behaviors that are less health-positive
  • How to start becoming truly body positive

And more!
