Ep. 166 ‘She’s All Fat Podcast’: Finding Your Way To Body Positivity + Social Change with April K. Quioh and Sophia Carter-Kahn

Sophia Carter-Kahn and April K. Quioh, the voices behind the She’s All Fat podcast, join us for an open and honest conversation about varying opinions and their experience in building a body positive podcast. Both April and Sophia have backgrounds in writing, and that’s how the two initially met! We chat about why they decided to create a podcast, and how they picked the name, She’s All Fat, plus we get into their favorites topics to cover on their show. Sophia and April also share their own personal journey towards self-love, and how the road to loving their own bodies and self acceptance—it hasn’t always been linear. The girls all laugh over the ways they take a break to digest all of the (at times heartbreaking) media, mainly in the forms of binge-watching new television series. In our conversation we go deep into how words like “fat” and “skinny” are neutral, and how we need to change the way that these topics are approached, especially in today’s social media-driven culture.


We also talk about…

  • Influence from our parents + how that affects us as we grow

  • Comments + backlash

  • How having a podcast has become therapeutic

  • The importance of having a therapist

  • April + Sophia’s life outside of their podcast

  • Where they go to stay educated

  • What’s to come for She’s All Fat
