The Body Story Podcast is a show about how we collectively experience our bodies, the shame that has been dealt to us, and the ways we’re coping with it. Each episode features an in-depth conversation with someone who is ready to share their body story. Our hope is that these stories will help others better understand the relationships with their own bodies and learn to love them unconditionally.
