“I listen to this podcast every week and I always learn so much! But this week listening to the episode with Dr. Hyman, I was frustrated by the glaring lack of an acknowledgement of food privilege and the inequity in food access. I feel like this is a common theme in the wellness world and on this podcast in general. How many people can actually afford a Levels glucose monitor? I only listened to half to episode with Dr. Hyman, because when Dr. Hyman was judging people for gaining 15 pounds during covid, it was rather tone deaf. Peoples lives have been flipped upside down this year and sometimes emotional eating comes with that. Yes, diet can absolutely help mitigate the risk of dying from the virus, but where is the mention of access or emotion? I also can’t help but notice the lack of representation of non-white guests on the podcast. I know some guests have been BIPOC, but they are few and far between.
This is just to say, I love the podcast and I love Kelly’s work. But there is another layer to this conversation that has been left out.”
