MY TOP BODY POSITIVE AND BODY IMAGE PODCAST RECOMMENDATIONS OF 2018


I love a #bopo podcast. I listen to them all the time so I thought I'd help cut through the sheer mass of listening material out there on the Body Positive Movement and give you a top 5 list of some recent podcasts which I have thoroughly enjoyed.

Flying penises!

I also quite like the fact you get to wrap yourself in a toga like sheet and swan about the place like the Queen or King that you are. Oh and everyone is rather friendly, even more so when you are in the skud as there ain'
