My name is Darko Botic, I'll be your host, and I am super excited to introduce my show to you, which is genuinely a massive thing for me - beginning of the next chapter of my life.



My mission, my purpose, is to fight Obesity Epidemic and positively affect its Global statistics. I know, it's highly ambitious, but I'm driven to reach this goal. However, to do that, first I need to reach as many people as I can, to tell my story, and to serve as a conduit between people who are struggling with obesity, and viable, evidence-based, scientifically supported information provided by - first and foremost - experts from many areas. I will do my best to approach all of my guests from the perspective of myself eight years ago when I weighed 180 kilos (approximately 400 pounds).

    Episode 27 – 6 Dangerous Trends of Social Media, with Darko Botic

    This episode is a bit different. I had solo episodes before, but this one felt like a relatively new experience because I tackled a topic and ranted about it. I talked about lack of responsibility of certain popular trends and personas on Social Media platforms. I reflected on six major points that stood out to […]

The introduction was brief because I just moved to England into an unfurnished new apartment, and there is zero soundproofing in all of our rooms here. However, when I recorded the conversation […]

    Episode 22 – Rebroadcast – Depression, Body Image and Weight Stigma within the Fitness Industry, with Registered Dietitian Matt Stranberg

    As an introduction to my third big conversation with Matt Stranberg, I decided to rebroadcast the previous two as this, and last week’s episodes. I can only admit that one of the reasons was also the fact that I’m contemplating recalibration of this podcast. I will still talk about obesity, but I am going to […]
