Today’s mini-episode is a continuation of a conversation we had with our favorite podcast guest Mikey Mercedes. Mikey shares her insight on whether or not you can “decolonize” your diet and why wanting communities of color to be vegan for health reasons may be misguided. Marquisele Mercedes is a doctoral student and writer from the Bronx and her doctoral training and interests are at the intersection of fat studies and scholarship on race/ism. She looks at how racism, anti-Blackness, and fatphobia shape health care, research, and public health work and training.
