  • Summary

  • When she suffered a seizure that saw her hospitalised with a cracked skull and facial injuries, Robyn Lawley started to reassess her future. Australia’s leading plus-size model had always called out body-diversity blind spots, but now wondered whether she could continue working in an industry with such a rigid view of beauty.

    So Lawley embarked on Every Body, a journey to redefine physical beauty, in which she looks critically at the #BodyPositvity movement and asks: who does it leave on the margin, and what is a better call to action? 

    Lawley talks to actress Jameela Jamil (The Good Place) about chronic illness, comedian Bridget Everett about the healing power of laughing, actor Ryan O’Connell (Special) about dating with Cerebral Palsy, actress Dascha Polanco (Orange in the New Black) about how race informs her identity and iconic model Paulina Porizkova about ageing in the fashion industry.

    Lawley talks to people thriving in bodies with Tourette’s Syndrome, Down syndrome, mastectomy scars, burn scars and those with bodies who were born different, such as Paralympian Kobie Donovan who competes at just 3’10 tall. 

    Every Body examines the stories we all carry in – and on – our bodies, providing an inspiring roadmap for how to accept our imperfections and even come to celebrate them. 

    Please note: contains some strong language and adult themes.

    This original podcast is 7 episodes in total, please begin with “Ep 1: Scars”.

a long needed conversation

this podcast surpasses the platitudes of body positivity to actually cast a light on disability, race, chronic illness and mental health as dimensions of living in a body. the way the episode is organized is interesting throughout as well as informative. i am recommending this to several friends.

Enlightening and Life Changing

Couldn't stop listening. All of the photos of Carrie Underwood dominate my news feed. She is always looking perfect and toned. I realize that this is negativity impacting my own body image. I am not heavy but am a foodie and will never be stick thin. The podcast makes me reevaluate how I see myself. I have a pretty tough body for being an insomniac for so many years. My body has been through a lot of emotional trauma and come out fighting! Great podcast!

Body Neutral

This was exactly what I needed to hear at exactly the right time. It was so inspiring to hear stories from people who truly put their bodies to the limit and came out stronger and full of self love in the end. A great reminder to everyone that beauty is not what we see in magazines and Instagram but in every single person around us. Made me love and appreciate my body for getting me through the things it has, even when I didn't give it the love it deserves.
