EP. 10 — ALOK

Indian-American writer, performance artist, and media personality ALOK joins Jameela this week to discuss all things Trans, gender non-conforming, and non-binary, the problem with those who are gender-critical & TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists), and how to be a better ally to those that are shunned by the rest of the world.


IWEIGH-010-20200611-ACv02-DYN.mp3   JAMEELA JAMIL [00:00:00] Hello and welcome back to “I Weigh” with Jameela Jamil. I wasn’t sure if this was still too soon to come back, but we are also in the middle of Pride, which is the celebration of all things LGBTQ plus. And there are so many important conversations to be had around that right now. And so I felt I would bring you a conversation with one of my favorite voices on the whole of the Internet, someone who I’ve learned so much from. I am talking about Indian-American writer, performance artist, and media personality, Alok Vaid-Menon. Who just goes by the name of Alok online. They are such a great educator. And they put things in a way that have just explained so many nuanced and historical issues to me. And so therefore, I invited them on to explain to me all things trans and gender nonconforming, all things nonbinary, and how to use pronouns and how to be a better ally to those who are shunned by the rest

Certified Lymphedema Therapist Lisa Levitt Gainsley joins Jameela this week to talk all things LYMPH! We learn how our gut houses 70% of our body’s lymphoid immune cells and what that means, how stress brings on inflammation and also how we can take control of helping our bodies release the waste from our lymph nodes. Lisa & Jameela talk about how we can take care of our bodies early and often, how our organs have different emotions, and what modern toxins are ending up in our bodies and what we can do to prevent absorbing them. Oh, and we learn how to give a good tit massage 😉
