Women Body and Soul


Nathalie Thandiwe is the creator, producer and host of Women: Body & Soul radio on 99.5 FM, WBAI Pacifica radio, NYC. The show facilitates womanist, social justice analysis of issues, events and culture.

She has a passion for creating dialogues that discuss how gender, class and race impact personal experience and social issues, that shed light on injustice, and break the silence surrounding so many aspects of our lives that we must speak of to transform and to know we are not alone.

Women: Body & Soul is radio at its best–provocative dialogues with writers, advocates, activists, healers, teachers and others who are challenging the status quo and working towards a socially just, healthy world in which women and girls have equal status and rights, by law, and experience this in all aspects of their lives.

Nathalie has worked in the fields of health, international development, education and media.  She is also a writer, health advocate, holistic chef and herbalist.
