Marketing strategist and copywriter Maggie Frank-Hsu joins us to discuss her eating-disorder experience and recovery, how pregnancy and parenthood changed her relationship with food and her body, how contradicting societal ideals oppress women and femmes, working at a food magazine while struggling with disordered eating, giving yourself permission to live in your truth, and so much more. Plus, Christy answers a listener question about how to reconcile the idea of having “thin privilege” when you’ve been criticized about your weight by an abusive parent. (This episode originally aired on March 9, 2020.)
