The 3rd annual Full Figured Industry Awards took place in New York on November 5th, and Heavy Conversation won the 2022 Podcast of the Year award! The FFIAs spotlight people and brands in the plus size and big & tall industries who are making waves and doing great work as models, designers, retailers, and more.
Heavy Conversation joins Brandon Madden (2022 Outstanding Big & Tall Model), Christian Noel (2022 Emerging Big & Tall Model), and Bradley Candie (Winner of the amazingly-named 2022 Outstanding Silver Fox Award) as representatives of the men’s side of the industry. See the complete winner’s list here.
For over four years, the Heavy Conversation Podcast has been discussing the issues that many plus size people deal with daily. From finding clothes that fit to body image, dating, and relationships – co-host Jody Koenig and I have covered it all over the course of 207 episodes.
Jody and I also use Heavy Conversation to share our love of beer! In each episode, we try a new and interesting beer – some you might know, and some you might not. We’ve tried brews from New Jersey to Jordan. You can follow our progress and see what we’re drinking on the Heavy Conversation Beer List at Untappd.
When you keep your head down and do the work, it’s easy to forget that people are engaging with the things you do. Thanks to the listeners who have stayed with us over the years and to anyone new just discovering the show.
Earlier this year, we put together a list of our favorite Heavy Conversation episodes to make diving in easier. Check it out here. Subscribe to Heavy Conversation at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.
