Pushing Limits

Fat body activist Amanda Levitt speaks with co hosts Eddie Ytuarte and Adrienne Lauby why being fat does not mean she is a person with a disability However, do the two communities share similar characteristics or experiences? Do us disabled share common barriers like facing various forms of discrimination or ....or being victimized by negative and ugly stereotypes. Are we being silly when we are told that one of the reasons people are fat is that we eat to much fast food in contemporary USA. What does Amanda think about some of the superficial impressions; but yes--we want to know why being fat is not being disabled.

Hello I just heard the 4/5/13

Hello I just heard the 4/5/13 program and your interview with Amanda Levitt, and re: your discussion about a 'group walking' website, I just wanted to let you (and other listeners) know that I've already created it and it's completely *free* for any city in the U.S. = :) Just select your U.S. city from the homepage and see if others are looking for a 'Walk Buddy(ies)' in your city (or if not (quickly) create account and post that you're looking for a Walk Buddy). Please pass along and FB 'Like' if you appreciate the free service I've created so others that may benefit from it can be exposed to it as well. Best wishes, thanks :)
