This week, Tre’Vell and Jarrett examine how body image impacts us as a society and on a personal level.

What does it mean to be "fit?"  

We'll take a look back at the history of fatness throughout the ages and how it has changed over the years. 

We're joined by body-positive "fit-fluencers" Kevin Carnell and Jessica Jade Rihal who talk to us about  reclaiming the term "fat," what body positivity looks like in their personal lives and how body-shaming and fat erasure cause damage both inside and out.

DIS/Honorable Mentions 

This week, Jarrett starts things off with an honorable mention to friend of the show Donovan Ramsey - whose new book "When Crack is King," hits bookstores soon. He's also serving up an honorable mention to former MTV VJ Kurt Loder who turns 75 this week and to the one and only Tyra Banks who continues to give it to us every ball with her hilarious (and often problematic) vintage America's Next Top Model content that is currently making the rounds on Twitter.

Jarrett would also like to give an honorable mention to all of you who reached out this past week and to all of you who expressed you've been going through some things these past few weeks. We feel you. 


Tre'Vell would like to extend a peach and an honorable mention to the hardest working woman in reality television— Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss. Check out Kandi and the other RHOA castmates this Sunday on Bravo for their first-ever virtual reunion episode. There's sure to be some digital wig-shifting and tons of shade thrown!

Also, shout out to the freelancers out there making it do what it do despite our current pandemic. We see you!

And lastly, shout out to all of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize winners this week, especially the ancestor Ida B. Wells for winning a posthumous honor.  


Go ahead and @ us
