Description

What started with a social media post has become a movement, and now a podcast. On I Weigh, Jameela Jamil challenges society’s definition of worth through weight by asking different thought-leaders, performers, activists, influencers, and friends about how they are working through their past shames to find where their value truly lies. With hilarious and vulnerable conversations, I Weigh will amplify and empower diverse voices in an accessible way to celebrate progress, not perfection.

"The work" sounds a lot like "pick yourself up from your bootstraps." I understand the sentiment behind it, but there are so many reasons why people can't just pick-up and go. I still appreciate the content this episode explores.

These women candidates you mention are Neoliberal corporatist shills. I look for candidates that have strong Socialist policies. You want something different and bold? Stop drawing Identitarian lines and fight for actual liberation from Patriarchy and Capitalism.

I gave this episode another shot after reading some thoughtful comments, and I learned to appreciate this podcast more. My formal request is to include more working-class voices. Thank you for this important work you do.

"I keep finding granola in my t*ts" ..... what's not to love? Hilarious. Love Jameela anyway so any excuse to get more of her candid humour about celebland etc the better.

Thank you Miss Jamil for this podcast, you have a wonderful empathy with your guests and your anti-BS attitude makes these people seem to be more human and less celebrity. You seem genuinely interested in what they have to say, and your uncanny knack for making them laugh at themselves a little is a joyous thing to feel part of. As a forty something, white, married professional living outside of Cardiff I'm sure I'm not the target audience you're aiming for, but I'm a keeper I'm afraid as you share some of the unique features of my favourite person in the world - my wife. Like her you make me laugh out loud at the most inappropriate moments, and who doesn't want a bit more of THAT in their life right now?

So pure and lovely and just what I needed. I hadn't got round to watching any of Beanie's work yet but I definitely will now. As a fellow queer, body-positive intersectional feminist with a focus on mental health and disability this podcast is a dream! Also I've been in love with Jameela since before I was aware of any of this stuff lol so I get an extra kick out it now 🌈💖

Thank you for a great episode with Beanie :) I especially liked that you mentioned that at one point in your life you gained some weight because you had the money to buy a lot of food and of high quality. Recognizing the financial aspect of food speaks to me loudly. Additionally, thank you for helping me put into words why is it not okay for people to comment on my body, regardless of the comment being "nice" or "meant well". You are right, Beanie really is a ray of positivity, I loved listening to your conversation. While I understand that you might look for guests on your podcast that would draw attention and listeners, I wanted to suggest interviewing somebody who isn't necessarily from show business/famous. In any case, I'm looking forward to the next episode and have subscribed :)
