EP36: Food, Health, and Injustice: Radical Truth for Every Body with Ali Shapiro

     

Whoa, this is a deep one. Ali and I were connected through a mutual friend because of some common history… cancer survivors, Penn grads, podcast hosts, shake-things-up types.

This could have been several episodes, as we discuss some HUGE topics from health care to power structures to privilege to patriarchy to emotional eating to cancer and more.  Ali’s incredibly passionate and knowledgeable. She works in the health and wellness industry to disrupt systems that aren’t working and help people advocate for their own healing.

In our conversation we get intense, but also with humor and hope.  Ali jokes, “Hi I’m Ali. I want to burn down the patriarchy. What do you do?” We decided we need to host our own style of cocktail party, where we talk about real things that matter to us and the world.  It’s that kind of show today… enjoy and please share it with your people.

In this convo we get into:

  • Speaking truth to power
  • Childhood cancer and pesticide exposure
  • The “nesting dolls” of capitalism, patriarchy, white supremacy and AND our health
  • The inequitable systems and structures of why people are in poor health
  • Our battles with food, eating, and our bodies and a historical perspective
  • Binge eating and emotional eating
  • The public health injustice with food deserts and poverty
  • How we’re not social-media-cocktail-party types
  • Adverse Childhood Experience scores (ACE) and our adult food relationships
