It’s the night before his gastric-band operation and Corey is terrified. He’s 16 years old, weighs 300 pounds and has a BMI of 60. However, if Corey doesn’t have the operation, his hypertension will literally make him blind. None of this stops him from stealing, in the dead of night, an electric motor-scooter from the hospital. He picks up his best friend Cassie, a recovering anorexic. Like Corey, Cassie has found solace in the jungle beats and liquid rhythms of D’n’B and they toast together all. the. time. Thing is, Corey has a plan. Eight miles away is the Brit School and the next morning, they’re holding auditions. Corey and Cassie are going to apply, get in, and change their lives forever.
Cassie & Corey is a drum ‘n’ bass musical podcast that may prove to be an effective way to stimulate engagement and dialogue; a crucial first step to finding solutions. Eating Disorders often go hand in hand with negative body image, and for young people, negative body image is an open door to anxiety and depression.
