Jameela Intro [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, podcast against shame. I hope you’re well and thank you so much for so many lovely messages about my deeply candid and personal episode of Ask Me Anything. I really did answer everything with as much personal truth as possible, and I appreciate how responsive you’ve all been. So give that a listen if you want to just have a sort of one on one chat with me in the car, maybe. But generally, you’ve just been such a dream and I’m so happy that you’re also happy with the episodes. This week is a very, very intense subject, but one of the most important subjects I feel like I’ve ever learned about. Not just during the time of making this podcast for almost four years. Wow. But ever. I had no idea that this thing was happening in the United States, and it has possibly changed the rest of my life to learn about it now. I was told to watch a film a few months ago call
