Is there really an “epidemic” of obesity in America? What are the social consequences of addressing people’s weight as a health crisis? What do issues of body size and inequality have to do with class, race and gender? Tonight we speak with DR.ABIGAIL C. SAGUY, Associate Professor of Sociology and Gender Studies at UCLA. Her new controversial book WHAT’S WRONG WITH FAT? will change the way you think about weight and obesity.
“A corpse is always a problem” writes author, researcher and editor BESS LOVEJOY in the introduction to her wild new book REST IN PIECES: THE CURIOUS FATES OF FAMOUS CORPSES. You may think that when a person dies and put into the ground, that is the end of the story. But in fact there is a lot of post mortem hanky panky that can occur. Bodies can get lost, they can travel all over the planet, they can get stolen, pieces may be taken as trophies. Tune in tonight and learn about the after death antics of such luminaries as Saint Nicholas, Moliere, Edgar Allen Poe and Eva Peron.
