Writer and body-positive activist Kelsey Miller returns to discuss The 67 Percent Project, Refinery29's new initiative to increase representation of plus-size bodies to match the actual percentage of American women who are plus-size. She shares why it's so important for people to see larger bodies in the media, how other content creators can get involved with this effort, what's new in her life since the last time she was on the podcast back in May, and more!
This is a special bonus episode in honor of International Podcast Day. We'll return to our regularly scheduled weekly episodes next Tuesday!
