June marks the fourth anniversary of Heavy Conversation, the podcast I do with Bear Skn’s Jody Koenig. At its core, the show is a way for Jody and me to talk about whatever’s on our minds. With 190 episodes under our belt, we’ve covered everything from new big & tall clothing brands to body image, grooming, pop culture, and plus size sex and relationships – all from a big guy’s perspective.
Each episode, we enjoy a tasty adult beverage while discussing a topic. Usually, that beverage is beer. I can speak for Jody and myself and say that we’ve expanded our beer-drinking horizons over the last four years, trying beers spanning the world from Jordan to…well, New Jersey. You can see (almost) all the beers we’ve tried in the Heavy Conversation beer list at Untappd.
If you haven’t listened to Heavy Conversation before, there are a lot of episodes to go through. So, where should you start? Well, our latest episode is always a good place, but you can look through every episode from the last four years in the player above.
