Friend of Marilyn

Friend of Marilyn From Access Radio Manawatu: Friend of Marilyn (FOM) is a fat positive radio show. It provides counter programming to the normative discourses on fatness and obesity in our culture, hosting conversations in which accepted ideas and stereotypes about fatness are challenged. FOM believes that safe spaces for fat people are important, and the show is committed to providing a forum where fat people get to speak for themselves (not just have their lives thinsplained by others). FOM began in August of 2011, and celebrated its’ 100th episode in April, 2014. Upon that airing, FOM had welcomed 62 guests, highlighted 100 blog posts, and played music from over 30 fabulous fat artists. According to the metrics collected by Access Manawatu, Friend of Marilyn has around 250 regular listeners, and is ranked in the top 5 programmes produced by the station. It’s recently been added to the Airshare Project, which allows other Access radio stations in New Zealand to broadcast the fat positive programme. Every Friday morning at 4:10. Show Less
