On todays episode of podcastage, we cover a lot of ground. First we talk about old relationships and ex girlfriends who have children now. Then we go into the always fun Let's Learn Our Country, where we cover the state of New Mexico, even though we already have listeners in NM. And as I promised, I have included the video that I discuss in the news portion, in this post.
At around 16 minutes I go on another diatribe regarding public shaming in regards to Nicole Arbour. I think what has happened in this situation is Nicole Arbour was attempting to gain traction as an actress by gaining a large social media following by creating controversial youtube videos. By gaining a higher online following, she can leverage this when looking for new roles. People who are overweight (myself included) have had enough. We were made fun of one too many times and we snapped, unleashing all our anger and frustration onto a single person. All that anger we have is not caused solely by Nicole Arbour. It has accumulated over the decades that we have been treated poorly and picked on.
I think that Nicole Arbour made an unfunny, insensitive video in attempts to gain traction in an entertainment system that is horrible and exploitative, and that the public shaming ensued because overweight people have had enough. Nicole Arbour was just the unlucky one to be the straw the broke the camels back.
Enjoy the episode, and for the love of the few good things left in this world, treat each other kindly please.
