The Made of Human Podcast, also called MohPod, is about connection. I sit down with a lovely person and we talk about life. I want to find out how to cope with being an adult person. I want to find out how to deal with all of the confusing bits of life. All of the hurtful bits of life. I want to sit, for just an hour, with a great person and learn from them. And - if they have no idea how to 'adult', then that will be absolutely okay - at least we will have an hour of feeling like we're not the only ones in the world.

Sofie and Melbourne-based fat activist, personal style fashion blogger and web developer Kobi Jae talk about the deeper meaning behind swapping clothes, downplaying fatness, the word 'plus-size', the co-opting of body positivity, penny-drop moments, dashed Musical Theatre dreams, Amanda Palmer and flying in the face of what's expected, ‘selfie’ culture, stomach tattoos, giving yourself room to be human and outliving your fears.
