Episode 08 with Ash Manning!

Ash Manning (she/her) is a self-proclaimed plus-size outdoorswoman working on breaking stereotypes put on bodies of all shapes and sizes. She pushes back on the narrow view of what hikers, boaters, or outdoorsy people should look like perpetuated by the outdoor industry. Ash also acknowledges there is more than just size to take into account when expanding space in nature for everyone. She seeks to aid in creating space for everyone underrepresented in the outdoor world. ig: @ashleysadventure

Show notes

Surveys about weight gain = I LIED! Ok, I didn’t, but I can’t find the article I read which makes me think it was possibly bunk. Regardless, the amount of jokes and memes we’ve seen speak for themselves. Our obsession with quarantine weight gain is harmful to ourselves and the fat people in our lives.
