What better way for two podcasters to check in with each other on their weight loss adventures than by starting a podcast about it? Join John (Brand X Podcast) and Emily (The Story Behind) as they try their hardest to shed those pesky pounds and check in with each other every week. Note: We are not doctors, nor do we play doctors on TV (or in this podcast). Please talk to a medical professional before taking any of our advice.
