For this episode, I took a pause for humanity. We took a pause to discuss the issues that have unfolded over the past few weeks. Two more black men dead at the hands of police officers. 8 police officers dead at the hands of gunmen upset about the constant killing of black men by police officers.  This is crazy and it keeps happening!  This is an issue that affects ALL communities, not just the curvy community.  As a podcast host, a black male podcast host, I had to do this episode.  I had to get this off my chest.  If you do not like the talk of Black Lives Matter and all that’s been going on in the world, this may not be the episode for you to listen to.  If you can understand the anger and frustration in the black community right now, then please, listen to this episode.  Thank you

TCP 015: Does FULL FIGURED Equal Unhealthy?

I posted a status on Facebook about my weightless goals and the conversation totally went left and sparked this podcast episode.

It’s really a question and debate that happens all the time now that the plus industry is getting more attention. Does being PLUS SIZE or FULL FIGURED mean you’re unhealthy?
