'Saturday Night Live' cast member Aidy Bryant mourns the time she lost in her
teens and early 20s feeling self-conscious about her weight and living in fear
of judgment about her body. "The second I stopped being afraid of someone
calling me fat, I was able to start to focus on my goals and my dreams,"
Bryant says. Now she stars in the Hulu series 'Shrill,' based on Lindy West's
memoir about being fat and feminist. The series follows Annie, a journalist
struggling with body acceptance. Bryant talks about her own journey to being
fat positive and her road to 'SNL' with Terry Gross.
Also, rock critic Ken Tucker reviews two Ray Charles albums of country music
that have just been re-issued.
Barbara Brown Taylor, an ordained Episcopal priest, left her job as rector of
a church to become a professor of religion. Her new book, 'Holy Envy,' is
about how teaching the religions of the world changed her understanding of her
own faith, and how her students, who were mostly Christian, responded when she
took them to mosques, synagogues, and Buddhist and Hindu temples.
