Happy Turkey Lurkey Day Dash Hounds! Beth and Kelly hope you are just as miserable as they are eating your meal alone in a closet this Covidsgiving. Or not at all. This week’s tale of truth is about Mollie Fancher - a fasting girl of the Victorian Er-ah who thought it would be cool to not eat. For years. And brag all about it. And other women did too because food- ew. We will chat about the fact that there is just too much sex in food, and lots of holiness in starvation. And like all the health and wellness podcasters, we will give you great tips on how best to enjoy that pumpkin pie. If you even bother.
