The Podcast Bears Talk Weighty Problems Like Weight Gain and Body Positivity

Scott and Jonny are getting ready for the week long adventure in Las Vegas and Palm Springs and what’s on their mind? We are talking weight gain and the frustration of gaining weight without shaming the bear or chub community. How do you try to look your best for others when you don’t look your best for yourself. Being a bear or a chub is being a part of a community who accepts all body types and body positivity is important, but sometimes we can still get upset with our weight. Here’s our conversation.

Welcome to “Bears of a Certain Age,” the lifestyle podcast for the bear and chub communities and their admirers, who are approaching 50 years young and up. Your Co-Hosts are Scott Fullerton from the Left of Str8 Radio Network and Jonny Shuffield from The Queer Centric. Scott and Jonny have both been entertaining the lgbtq community thru their own podcasts and writings for a combined 20 years, and Jonny has been an entertainer and host for many lgbtq events beyond that.

Join us as we rant, rave, laugh, cry and talk about all things a little later in life and how we deal with them thru humor, education and fun.

We very much want this to be a listener driven show, so we are asking our audience to submit questions for our “Ask The Bears” segment; submit “Bear Hugz” for people who deserve a little public praise; Tell us about their favorite things for our “Bear Necessities Segment; and any other goofy puns that Scott can think up. Submit everything to
