A new and different podcast!
Great job Jody and Bruce! Great audio quality and great take on a topic not often addressed! Thanks for doing this and I'm looking forward to more episodes! Keep up the great work!!
Hello guys, Thank you for this guys! love this podcast (into ep. 3) I am a short guy, but big. I understand many of the topics mentioned so far your idea of bringing beer into the conversation is funny and really enjoyable. Want to thank you guys for bringing up the point of that if you are big you don't have to wear baggy clothes to hide you figure, own it and explore it, fashion and style is for everyone! Thank you for showing a new perspective for big guys.
Intelligent and Clever
The discussion was both insightful without being condescending; it inspires one to think outside of the socially constructed boxes for men of a certain size. You two have brilliant commentary and ideas!
