Jes Baker is a positive, progressive, and magnificently irreverent force to be reckoned with in the realm of self-love advocacy and mental health. She is internationally known for preaching the importance of body liberation, hard conversations, strong coffee, and even stronger language.

Jes burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types—a move that landed her on the Today Show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives.

When not writing, Jes spends her time speaking around the world, working with plus size clothing companies, organizing body liberation events, taking pictures in her underwear and attempting to convince her cats that they like to wear bow ties.

In this podcast episode, we talk about how Jes found body positivity and her career trajectory. We spent a good amount of time talking about her recent book, Landwhale. We talk about what it's like to write a book about all the most intimate and vulnerable details of your life and Jes talks about why she believes you should look at old pictures of yourself. We ended the conversation talking about what the world and the body positivity community would look like if she could wave a magic wand and change things. 

Jes is a true force to be reckoned with and pure joy to interview. Enjoy!
