Movies that Matter is the podcast about films going above and beyond the call of box office returns to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Sep 12, 2019

Lexy and Nicole discuss Brittany Runs A Marathon, the movie's relatable story of Brittany's struggle, our appreciation for Jillian Bell's non-stereotypical Hollywood body, and the body positivity movement and it's issues with weight loss. Read about some of the flak the movie caught for its weight loss story line in Quartzy and Runners World. Also read Shauntay Snell's story of being heckled during the NYC marathon.

Lexy recommends Jazzmyne Robbins on Buzzfeed. Nicole recommends two This American Life episodes: If You Don't Have Anything Nice to Say, SAY IT IN ALL CAPS and Tell Me I'm Fat.
