Season 3 of Butterfly’s body image podcast now available
Butterfly’s award winning podcast Let’s Talk is back, with Season 3 exploring the historical, cultural and contextual roots of body dissatisfaction and eating disorders.
Season 3 will see Butterfly invite experts from an array of disciplines to the body image and eating disorder discussion, from cultural anthropologists and plastic surgeons to social media influencers.
Each episode will capture insightful conversations about how and why body dissatisfaction and eating disorders occur, as well as the paths to recovery.
With the aim to promote body kindness and awareness that body image issues and eating disorders can impact anyone, the podcast will also include stories of lived experience.
Butterfly Foundation CEO Kevin Barrow says “The voice of lived experience is imperative to Let’s Talk. We find that when people share their own story, others deeply resonate and hear themselves represented.”
In its first year of production (2020), Let’s Talk was listed in Apple’s New and Noteworthy Podcasts and in the following year it won the Mental Health Service Sound/Vision Journalism Award.
Season Three sees Butterfly continue its successful collaboration with Tasmanian podcast producer Ikin Media, and welcomes back the popular Sam Ikin as host.
Reflecting on past seasons and discussing forthcoming episodes Ikin says “The last two seasons have been exciting, terrifying, engaging and cathartic all at once. We’ve found out so much about body image and eating disorders, including that there is a tremendous amount that we don’t know.”
“In Season Three, we’re peeling back the layers even further to see just how deeply ingrained eating disorders are in our society. I can’t tell you precisely what is going to happen, but I can promise we will boldly go where no conversation has been before.”
The first episode of Let’s Talk Season Three is out now and focuses on one of the most basic questions, yet the one most often asked on the Butterfly Helpline: How do you know it’s an eating disorder?
