Such a shame the sound quality is so poor because the content is valuable.

I think it's fair to say this episode is titled incorrectly. The majority of the conversation is about HAES and body positivity in general and how they approach it as practitioners. They get explicit about the food addiction topic a whopping 50 minutes into the episode.

Absolutely loved this. As someone who is recovering from ED behaviors and sex addiction, it was beautiful to hear this intersection of sex and food and loved the queer, feminist perspective. would love to hear more like this!
