Meat is an international podcast created on the surface of a person's skin. It is a vision of the world from the point of view of human flesh. In people's everyday life, there's a wall between their ideas, dreams and desires and the real world: our body. A cage for the human behaviour made by flesh and bones that affects the way we interact with the rest of the world: the sound of our voice, the line of our movements, the space we take up on a bus because of our weight, the dominant or submissive position we are forced to take when we argue with someone because of our height: our reality is a constant argument between what we have in our head and what the body we are born with is able to do.
In the inaugural episode of Meat, Jonathan Zenti candidly and beautifully discusses his body and how he loves it despite the fact that not everybody else does. This episode was created for Radiotopia’s Podquest, by PRX and made possible with funds from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Written and produced by Jonathan Zenti, story editing by Cathy Fitzgerald. Original music composed by Jonathan Zenti, Meat theme song sung by Valentina Ziliani. Bodies editorial advising by Molly Osberg, Bodies beats by Allen Watts.
