    In a society that values thinness, writer Anshuman Iddamsetty said the anger fat people recieve is as much about his rejection of social norms and expectations, as it is about being fat. Adam Smith, a writer and podcaster, decided to perform naked not once, but twice. He said he wanted to test his comfort level with his body, and so partook in a regular event called Naked Boys Reading.

    This week on Tapestry, Mary Hynes speaks with world-renowned philosopher Martha Nussbaum about anger - how it's used and abused, what it's for, and how human beings might learn to 'do' anger with a little more skill. Nussbaum's book on the subject is called "Anger and Forgiveness: Resentment, Generosity, Justice." Martha Nussbaum was the winner of the 2018 Berggruen Prize for Philosophy and Culture, a one million dollar award given to a thinker whose ideas have profoundly shaped the world. She is a professor of Law and Ethics at the University of Chicago.
