Tom welcomes first-time guest and longtime community member Daniel to discuss journeys with body image and pursuit of the ideal! They share their adolescent vantages from both sides of the scale, Daniel overweight and Tom underweight, and how the gym and general fitness practices have factored into their lives in adulthood. There’s also a good amount of Enneagram talk with Daniel as a Nine and Tom as a Four chiming in from those perspectives (or is Daniel actually an Eight?). Despite the lack of the ideal body or ideal life, is there something of value we can offer the world in our seeming lack?
