This week on the Heavy Conversation podcast, we’re asking the big questions. Namely: where are all the plus size superheroes? There actually are a few, and they run the spectrum from awesome to not so great. We dive deep into all that, share our favorites and I get to geek out on comic books – still one of my favorite things.

We also discuss how fat people are only allowed to be the villain, the funny fat guy or the slob when it comes to entertainment, and how we want to see those tropes subverted in the future.

Listen to this and all past episodes here, get it at iTunes or on your favorite podcast platform – it’s everywhere.
