Guy Branum talks about the stories pop culture tells about fat people—they're lazy, they're dumb, they're cowards—and how despite everything, he loves his body a great deal. Guy also talks about the lack of gay standup comedians who've found mainstream success,  why he doesn't care about writing jokes that are considered "nice and acceptable," and managing depression.

Guy is the author of the new memoir, My Life As A Goddess.
