Hey fashionistas! What do you listen to while you work out, drive to work, on a long flight, or on your commute on the bus or train? Have you jumped on the podcast wave yet, because you definitely should! There’s tons of different kinds of podcasts, from true crime, to gossip, comedy, news, and pop culture—there’s literally a podcast for everyone! My personal faves are the body positive, fat acceptance, and plus size fashion podcasts! I’ve gathered seven great plus size podcasts to add to your library for all your listening needs. Check them out below!
7 Must-Listen To Plus Size Podcasts
She’s All Fat
Hosted by April K. Quioh and Sophie Carter-Kahn and dedicated to pop culture, personal experiences, and as quoted by the hosts themselves “body positivity, radical self love and chill vibes ONLY.” They have great discussions including problematic faves, fat suits, and guests like GabiFresh! Available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, Pocket Cast, PlayerFM, and CastBox.
Plus Size Magic
This podcast is a part of Fatness Fiction, a project created by Ellise Smith. There’s in depth conversations with guests, like dispelling common fat myths and discussing body things like stretch marks and cellulite. Available on Apple Podcasts and Soundcloud.
Why Won’t You Date Me?
Comedian, actress, and host of Netflix’s Nailed It! Nicole Byer hosts a hilarious podcast where she is trying to find the underlying reason of why she could possibly still be single. She has guests every episode, from other comedians to body pos babes like Tess Holliday. While the podcast is not necessarily centered on body positivity, it is absolutely hilarious to hear Nicole list her positive qualities and ask her guests if they’d be willing to date her every episode. Available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
Fat Girls Club
Fashion designer Liesl Binx and style blogger Jessica Torres are two body positive advocates that are challenging norms in the fashion industry. Their podcast discusses their everyday experiences as fat women, from the funny to the embarrassing. They talk about fashion, love, and a little bit of everything in between! Available on Apple Podcasts.
Late Night Whenever
Comedian and actress Michelle Buteau hosts the weekly live podcast with special guests like Danielle Brooks and fellow podcaster Phoebe Robinson of 2 Dope Queens. This podcast is another one that is also not focused on being plus size or body positivity exclusively, but because Michelle is plus size, and she constantly throws in hilarious quips about spanx and the anxiety of sweat, she definitely made the list! Available on Apple Podcasts, Pocket Casts, Google Play, TuneIn, and Stitcher.
Bad Fat Broads
A biweekly podcast hosted by Ariel and KC, two fat activists. They describe their podcast as being “dedicated to bad fat bitches”. It’s intersectional and focused on including queer, trans, and PoC perspectives in their discussions. They talk about sex, pop culture, style, self care, and fat activism. Available on Apple Podcasts and Soundcloud.
The Fat Club
This Utah based podcast features two hosts covering a range of topics, but the big ones include body politics, fat acceptance, happiness, health, and radical self love. They recently had The Curvy Fashionista on there, so you know we had to show some love! Available on Apple Podcasts.
