I just found This podcast a few days ago, and went back to the beginning. I only on episode 18, but I'm already hooked. Laurie is really relatable, I feel like she could be my neighbor or friend. It's so hard to make people who aren't overweight understand, or even people who are overweight, but don't feel the compulsion to eat. It would be great if there were an episode devoted to explaining it, like a way to help people come out of the compulsive overeating closet. I love Laurie's human-ness, and how it reflects our own humanity. There is no pretense of perfection, her flaws are what make this podcast endearing.
