Bernie is back on the Body Kindness podcast and he brings news from the doctor’s office that makes Rebecca lose it (you’ll notice the bleeps!) Tune in as they discuss the insidious nature of weight stigma in medicine and what to do about it. Bernie and Rebecca also discuss Bernie’s reluctance to fully step into and embrace an identity with the word fat.
