This episode of Friend of Marilyn features Cat Pausé's full reaction following the broadcast of an episode of New Zealand current affairs television show 20/20, a discussion with Brian Stuart (of blog Red No.3) about Disney fat shaming. This week's spotlight features the blog The Lady Garden about not panicking because you already know you're fat.

The Friend of Marilyn podcast began in 2011 and ran through to 2021. Each episode features Cat Pausé’s reflections on fat related stories in the media, an interview with an activist, scholar, writer or community worker, a spotlight on literature, a blog or other piece of scholarship in the field of fat studies, and finished with music from fat artists. Friend of Marilyn was listened to around the world on multiple platforms and was broadcast locally by Manawatū People’s Radio online and on 999AM. The music featured throughout the programme is sampled from the song Standing in the Way of Control by Gossip and was used with permission from the band.

Cat Pausé was a senior lecturer at Massey University and was a recognised public intellectual and activist in the area of fat studies. She contributed to and coordinated several conferences in her field and was regularly consulted for her expertise by media. She was the lead editor of Queering Fat Embodiment and the International Handbook of Fat Studies. Her scholarship features in journals such as Fat Studies, Journal of Law, Medicine, and Ethics, Feminist Review, and Narrative Inquiries in Bioethics, as well as online in the Huffington Post, NPR, and The Conversation websites.

This episode has been edited from version originally broadcast to remove music by The Blues Brothers as rights and licences were not obtained by Manawatū Heritage.
