Have you heard!? The Curvy Fashionista has a new podcast called “The Thickening!” And my thick girl spirit is too excited for this *inserts Megan knees to twerk.”
“The Thickening” focuses on the lived experiences of plus-size people, celebrating all that we are. Not to mention I love our new curvy best friends, Danni and Toni. They take us on a wild ride every week, and I can assure you, you don’t want to miss it.
“The Thickening” Podcast was Born
The first season of “The Thickening” premiered in September. And is serving bawdy-awdy awdy with a generous portion of fun! Our fearless, yet so fabulous leader, Marie Denee, found our hosts on Clubhouse and adored their vibes. She loved the energy and conversations Toni and Danni were adding to the plus-size rooms.
They [Danni and Toni] are having these conversations and building community and at that time I hadn’t launched yet, our TCF Style Lounge. And so it’s like, for me, how do we give the readers…the folks in the community like a safe space? To have conversation where we can make sure that it is safe.-Marie Denee, Founder and CEO of The Curvy Fashionista
No Topic off limits
The Thickening covers love, activism, body positivity, tribes, and more. My fave episode so far is episode 4, “Fat with the Homegirls.” Most of us know what it is like to be the fat friend in our friend circle and experience “mean girl culture” because of it.
“I grew up seeing how important it is to have friends who are like you and be in a community with people who share a similar identity as you…” Danni explained. It is essential, in my opinion, to have friends who understand my experience as a fat, Black woman in today’s society. I admired how raw and honest both hosts were about their own stories.
Listen, I love good plus-size podcasts! Meaning anytime a new one pops up, it is like Christmas all over again. I look forward to the future topics that the ladies discuss and the guests they invite to the show. You can tune into “The Thickening” podcast every Wednesday on Apple Podcasts.
