EMERGENCY SERIES, EPISODE 3: Self-love during lockdown with Sylvia Mac from Love Disfigure

Welcome back to another emergency episode of Body Cons!

We’re here to help you navigate diet culture, the changing food landscape, anxiety and all the other things that may be triggering bad body image during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you’ve listened to our previous two series of Body Cons you might notice this one sounds a little different. This is because we’re each recording the interviews separately and making the podcast remotely. It’s not possible to travel the country together to have these conversations around people’s kitchen tables, but hopefully you’ll forgive the less than perfect sound quality of this series and still enjoy these important conversations.

This episode is introduced by Lottie, while Molly did the interview with this week’s guest. We’re joined by Sylvia Mac, founder of Love Disfigure. Sylvia is a child burns survivor, body image campaigner, inspirational speaker and diverse model and she talked to us about her own story and how her past experience has helped her to stay positive and practise gratitude in these current unsettled times.
