TRAILER: Welcome to Body Cons

Welcome to Body Cons! This is a brand new podcast, offering a curious look at one of modern life’s most pressing subjects: body image.

It’s been months in the making and we’re proud to finally unveil it to you – we hope you’ll listen to this trailer and subscribe, so you won’t miss the very first episode launching on iTunes and all good podcast providers on Monday 11th March.

A collection of conversations about bodies, from post-baby bodies to the latest pop video, from dismantling diet culture to disability, Body Cons looks at anything and everything to do with body image.

We developed the Body Cons podcast out of a shared interest in body image, diet culture, feminism and parenting. Deciding it was time for us to stop having these chats between ourselves and open up the subject for wider debate, we tracked down the expert voices that bring real credence to every episode, opening up the conversation to listeners all over the world.

We’ve travelled the country to have these conversations, weaving them into an introductory chat about body image in the news and popular culture every week. With a new episode launched weekly, season one will run through March and May, featuring a diverse selection of fantastic guests.

Podcast presented by journalists and presenters, Molly Forbes & Lottie Storey.
