Two Fat 'Fine

#50216_Moana Va Charity Static_ June_6x3_CHCH19-61 FINAL.png

Two Fat 'Fine began after our community expressed a desire to share our voices on various platforms, making our stories and experiences accessible to everyone. Hosted by Alex and MahMah, proud Pasifika members of the Rainbow community, this vibrant and unfiltered podcast celebrates life in its most joyous and authentic form.

Unapologetically fat, queer, and proud, Alex and MahMah take listeners on a fortnightly journey filled with laughter, heart-to-heart conversations, and a kaleidoscope of stories that reflect the diverse tapestry of the Moana Vā community. Each episode is a unique blend of humour and depth, alternating between engaging conversations with inspiring guests from diverse backgrounds and ages, and interactive episodes where listeners become an integral part of the discourse.

From queer awakenings to cultural insights, this podcast is a testament to the power of storytelling and the strength of community. This is Two Fat 'Fine – where self-love, identity, and unfiltered joy take center stage.

You can listen every fortnight on Fridays at 9 PM on Plains FM or wherever you get your podcasts.
