Show Notes

Magda Szubanski is the host of Magda’a Big National Health Check. It’s a new show out now on the ABC and today on the podcast we talk about the approach the ABC have gone with in having an obese host fronting a series on health.

Is it OK? Is it the right message? And what message does it send to viewers?

Before you press play, we can tell you that we’re more than happy for Magda Szubanski to be hosting the program. No worries with it whatsoever. But the issue we mainly discuss on this episode is whether her own experiences (and her experiences with health professionals) is a template that could disempower Australians to not take responsibility for their own health.

We referenced two articles in this episode – this one from the ABC, and this one from The Guardian.
