Join Bruce from Chubstr and Jody from Bear Skn for the Heavy Conversation podcast. Heavy Conversation discusses the issues many plus size people deal with every day. From finding clothes that fit, to dating, to the myth that fat people can’t be active – we’re taking on each topic and offering tips and solutions.

155: On Fatness and Vulnerability
In the last few weeks, two big men have publicly shared their stories about how the world looks at (or overlooks) them because of their size. We've been told for decades that being vulnerable and talking about emotional pain is a weakness. These guys push back against that. In this episode, Bruce and Jody discuss that changing dynamic.
I’ve been listening to this podcast since the very beginning. I love listening to their point of views, and ideas for the future for big men.
Try a KC Bier Dunkel!!!
A friend told me about this podcast a few weeks ago and I LOVE it!!!! As a gentleman of size, I really appreciate a lot of what you guys talk about and have learned a lot from you. One recommendation I wanted to make (in honor of the Kansas City Chiefs making it to the super bowl for the first time in 50 years) is to try a Kansas City beer!! KC Bier makes a really delicious dunkel...
Thank you guys so much for the podcast!
PS: just got my new order of bearskn!!! Sooooo comfy!!
Great podcast about heavy conversations
Great podcast that talks about subjects rarely made public for big and tall guys. Just started listening to this and it is definitely a wonderful thing hearing the conversation on these subjects from those who have experienced it.
