Body Trauma: A Storytelling Podcast

By Nia Patterson

The idea that our bodies hold onto every traumatic event in our life is the backbone of this trauma informed therapy and research. Across the world people struggle with the reality of their bodies in a world full of diet culture, racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. Body Trauma is a podcast that listens to people recount their experiences in their body and their life. Because it’s hosted by a millennial, there is sure to be some cursing, pop culture, and humor as well. Hosted by Nia Patterson, a writer, artist, and activist, we listen to people of all backgrounds. Through all types of agency and marginalization people share their body’s story. We discuss all types of discrimination, eating disorders, body image, sexual assault, gender transition, and more. Interspersed by humorous conversations and encouragement through the tough topics we talk about.Subscribe for new stories told by a wide range of professionals, activists, writers, and regular people just like you.
