Podcasts About Eating Disorders

Podcasting is still not a well-understood idea. Everyone's HEARD of them now, but not everyone's listening to them or gets how they work. There seem to be two kinds of people, mostly: those whose commutes and housecleaning are dull wastes of time, and those who look forward to them. I'm one of the latter.

I'm a fan, but also a podcaster. Two years ago, after being a great listener of a wide range of podcasts, I went ahead and learned the other side: the recording, editing, producing, and publishing of these audio morsels. For my first project I picked something entirely out of my usual interests or comfort zone: "sex over 50" from the perspective of a prude. I researched the topic, got out there and found interviewees, studied audio design and the technicalities of publishing, and put in a year of work building an audience. And then, as planned, I stepped down and gave it to others to carry on. It was fun, it was enlightening, and I learned heaps.

Naturally, I'm applying that set of skills to my new podcast, NEW PLATES, around the topic of my work: eating disorders recovery. And as I get out there I find people in the ED world not that familiar with podcasts so part of my mission of spreading the word on what I do is helping others find good podcasts on the topic as well as helping out anyone who wants to start podcasting.

In that spirit, I want to point you all to the other eating disorder-related podcasts out there:

Eating disorder recovery podcast, with Tabitha Farrar
