Upcoming Broadcasts

This week, Rock and Spectre are joined by Substantia Jones, founder of The Adipositivity Project, to talk about fat love, sex and relationships, body acceptance, the spirals of weight loss and weight gain and the multi-billion dollar industries they support, feminism and f**kyouism! Some more about Adipositivity and our guest: The Adipositivity Project aims to promote the acceptance of benign human size variation and encourage discussion of body politics, not by listing the merits of big people, or detailing examples of excellence (these things are easily seen all around us), but rather through a visual display of fat physicality. The sort that's normally unseen. The hope is to broaden definitions of physical beauty. Literally. Substantia Jones is the founder of and photographer for the photo-activism campaign, The Adipositivity Project, and runs both SmileSizeist.com and UppityFatty.com. She has spoken about body politics on NPR, Sirius/XM, and The Pacifica Radio Network, as well as on radio stations in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. She's also the producer and host of the four-part radio series PolitiSIZE on WBAI-FM in New York City. She's contributed to books by Random House, Seal Press, Ten Speed Press, and Vignette, and lectures annually on her photography at Parsons School of Design, The New School in New York City. Substantia is also curator of the Body Image Channel at Waywire.com.
