IWEIGH-124-20220822-ZacharyLevi-ACv02-DYN.mp3 Jameela [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, a podcast against shame. How are you? I’m good. I’m excited because today’s episode is fucking brilliant. I have the excellent, excellent Zachary Levi on this podcast opening up in the most stunning way I have heard someone do so in a really long time. It’s such a great chat that I left feeling so energized and wanting to tell absolutely everyone about the conversation I just had and from the messages I’m already getting from all of you. It seems to be that you feel the same way and there’s so much helpful, tangible, unpretentiously put information in this episode. It’s such a warm chat and he’s just so honest and real. We discuss generational trauma. We discuss therapy, introspection. We talk about hormonal depression, which I didn’t really know a lot about, and how Zach has finally become comfortable
