If you’re not tuned in to Jana Schmieding and her awesome podcast Woman of Size, you’re missing out. Jana is a comedian, writer, educator, and artist with a talent for getting to the heart of why we need to expand our vision of justice. She is also a Lakota woman who navigates feminism in white and decolonized spaces and has a lot to say about both. We talked about how she uses her platform to advance both Native and fat liberation, dug into the distinctions between body positivity and fat positivity, and celebrated the badassery of Wilma Mankiller. (P.S. Check out her essay in the new YA book The Other F Word!)
