EP. 130 — Celeste Barber – Re-Release

This week, we are bringing back a favorite episode of ours – Jameela’s interview with Celeste Barber! The Australian comedian and actor joins Jameela to discuss her astoundingly successful fundraiser to fight the Australian fires, her relationship and experience with antidepressants, how to quarantine with a spouse and still love them (hint – imagine they are dead and how sad you would be), her delightful parodies of Instagram influencer/model photos with #celestechallengeaccepted, and challenging Instagram’s double standards when it comes to censoring female bodies.
