Yourself, Your Body
Yourself, Your Body
Hosted by Arti Gollapudi & produced by Amanda Justice, Yourself Your Body is a comedic variety show discussing our hearts, farts, strange parts, and minds with an aim to dismantle social binaries & the beauty standards of mainstream media through sharing stories & reclaiming space. This show is dedicated to the weird, the beautiful, the gross, and, ultimately, the human.

"Censor the body and you censor breath and speech at the same time. Write yourself. Your body must be heard."
- Helene Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa
