Questions of corporeality and body shaming are currently part of the concept of the body expansion and manifestation in the social space and power relations. Equally intrusively, they are becoming part of media discourses in the communication of beauty, body standards, self-acceptance, and self-evaluation. This study offers a glimpse of the contemporary podcast scene, which provides an ideal platform for presenting the psychologically sensitive topic of intimate issues of corporeality. Using the example of one English-Italian (The Meat) and two Czech podcasts (The Lard, The Edge), the author applies several theses of Michel Foucault, especially his notion of discipline as a mechanism of power. The space of the podcast is understood as a liminal space, a transitional bridging medium without images and precise contours, which allows for experiments with sound, greater intimacy such as intimacy of the message, and unconventional narrative practices. Grounded in the theory of Dario Llinares, the author explores the selfreflexive potential of the new medium of podcasting, with references to audio-narratological practices, demonstrating the possibilities of the podcast as a progressive phenomenon of auditory production.
The study was conducted as part of the research IGA Faculty of Arts Palacký University Olomouc 2021 43210_4141.
