Lindy West is a leading voice of the fat acceptance movement, a position that’s earned her a lot of devoted fans — and a lot of enemies. Dan sits down with Lindy, author of the best seller Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman, at a New York City diner, where they get into the issues that fat people face when eating in public. Lindy explains why she still feels the need to buy carrots at the grocery store when she’s picking up a cake, and discusses the assumptions strangers make when they see her with her “skinny, hot husband.” But it’s not all serious. Dan and Lindy geek out over the best way to make sandwiches at an airport lounge, and Lindy reveals her controversial theory about Lean Cuisine pizza. //
