Your Body is Beautiful (Episode 107)

Serell BrownSerell Brown is the mother of two teens. She describes herself as a fun-loving hard worker with old school morals. She is the founder and creator of Nubian Nudist, an organization for black nudists and naturists that is based in New Jersey and has members across the US as well as some abroad. Serell talks candidly about the origins of her nudism, creating social spaces for body-positive acceptance, and releasing shame to begin loving all of yourself.

Before the featured interview in The Blanket Fort, Wendy Sheridan and Robin Renée take a personal look at the important work of processing negative emotions. The 3 Random Facts that get things started this time involve koala fingerprints, penguin urine, and a fateful moment in the life of LBJ. In the News is the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and help needed for abandoned Afghans, Andrew Cuomo’s replacement by new New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Proud Boys v. Antifa in Portland, rally boos for Trump, a Sex Pistols legal battle, and two “water can be dangerous” stories. At the end of the show, Robin and Wendy address a listener’s question, “What are the real reasons people are choosing not to get vaccinated and what would change their minds?”
