About

Fatties on Ice is a podcast about pop culture and media from a feminist, fat-positive, progressive point of view. Cynara Geissler and Jenny Henkelman get together (virtually) each week to praise, pan and interrogate TV, movies, celebrity culture, fashion, geeky internet stuff. We are both charmed and alarmed by the glossy pop offerings on our slick cultural landscape, and our talks reflect this push and pull. You might say we’re aiming for the conversational equivalent to a yeoman’s updo in Classic Trek: a raucous auditory interweaving of wit, lit, and crit into a shiny, multi-faceted, gravity-defying sculpture that is always greater than the sum of its parts.
