Episode 78: An International public and TEDx speaker and best selling author, Zoe Burnett (she/hers) is a diet culture rebel

Catherine and Francis were excited to speak with diet culture rebel and eating disorder campaigner, Zoe Burnett. Zoe is an Amazon best selling author of “inside my ed” and an international public and TEDx speaker. She brings all of that experience — as well as her lived experience recovery from an eating disorder — to this interview. Filled with energy, knowledge, and passion, Zoe recalls her own journey experiencing an eating disorder, being diagnosed with atypical anorexia, having the support of her husband, bashes the BMI, and gives her insights on how government policies contribute to development of poor body image and eating disorders. Zoe’s goal is to try to inspire, with empathy, to embrace the notion of body acceptance, whilst exposing the harms of diet culture, encouraging us to count the memories, not the calories. And she did just that!

94: Tattoos and Trauma

Tattoos have become more acceptable over the years but are often only seen as having decorative value.  My guest #DonnaTorrisi has written a book about the connection between tattoos and trauma.  While a tattoo sits only on the skin, the meaning of tattoos may be much deeper for some individuals, telling a story of a difficult time in their lives, a loss or a story of abuse.  In this way, tattoos are a form of self-expression that can tell you something about the person and their life’s journey.  We heal from trauma in many ways…tattoos are one of those ways.    In this episode, you will learn: How tattoos can create a bond between people who have experienced difficult life circumstances. How body markings can play a part in healing from trauma. Whether Dr. Carolyn has a tattoo and if yes, why?

Episode 77: Maris Degener (she/hers) shares her story and the work she continues to do to advocate for peer mentorships within recovery

Catherine and Francis were thrilled to speak with Maris Degener, Manager of Peer Mentorship with Equip, a virtual eating disorder treatment for individual six to 24 years old. After recovering from anorexia nervosa as a teenager, Maris became passionate about harnessing her lived experience to support others experiencing eating disorders. Maris shared her story in the documentary “I Am Maris,” to spread the message that full recovery is possible and destigmatize talking openly about mental health experiences.

In this conversation, Maris walks the co-hosts what it was like to receive Family Based Treatment as a teenager for her eating disorder, including the sometimes-difficult experiences with her parents, whom ultimately, she credits for being an important piece of her recovery. Maris shares how yoga became a vital component to her ongoing recovery efforts and provides listeners with other skills she found helpful.

Maris talks about her work with Equip, and how mentorship — both for the individual and for the family — is an important part of the recovery process often left out of the equation.

We thank Maris for her continued work with and advocacy for those experiencing eating disorders, and are incredibly grateful for her time, energy, and vulnerability.
