This episode of Friend of Marilyn features Cat Pausé’s Fat-licious holiday gift guide 2012, a chat with Kath Read from the Fat Heffalump about what she hopes to find under the Christmas tree, and a spotlight on a piece by Ragen Chastain from Dances With Fat on Turkey, mashed potatoes and boundaries.

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.
