    Did Old Navy's Plus Size Launch Really Backfire?

    Did Old Navy's Plus Size Launch Really Backfire?

    A recent article in the Wall Street Journal says that Old Navy's recent size-inclusive relaunch backfired. Did it really? We look at what worked and what the brand can do better when it comes to plus size representation. We also discuss the horrific school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and how we can avoid similar tragedies in the future.

Great Podcast

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!

Chad

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.
