Being Broadtail, a new podcast and YouTube Series telling the stories of plus size women from Jamaica who are on different parts of their confidence journey is set to be released tomorrow, March 11, 2021 at 8:00 p.m. on Spotify and Apple Platforms.

“The stories of women, especially full-figured women, are so powerful in helping other women to overcome everyday obstacles and live their best lives. I have been inspired by so many women and I’ve learnt that my own journey and the Broadtail brand has inspired others to feel and live confidently at the beach and even in the boardroom. This is how I knew that the time was right to document these stories and release them in Women’s History Month as we all try to be encouraged by each other in a pandemic,” said series Creator and Owner of Broadtail Designs, Dania Beckford.

The eight (8) episode series features familiar faces such as Cultural and Creative Entrepreneur Dahlia Harris, Life Coach and Social Media Influencer Carla Moore, Oprah Winfrey’s Stand in Model, Tricia Campbell, the Bridal Boss and Vitiligo Advocate Sara Stanford, Plus size Fashion Boutique Owner Trudi-Ann Herdsman and Reve Jewelry Owner and Marketer, Teasea Bennett

Conversations ranging from the ‘snap back” phenomenon after child birth, the prejudice faced in our local media scene, staying mentally agile, finding well-fitted clothing and a partner that satisfies the physical needs of a full-figured woman are explored. “Wi honestly talk up di tings dem; from favourite body parts to navigating successful careers” laughed Dania “it’s entertaining, and authentic; it’s what most of us think and want to hear as women but is rarely said,” she continued.

Shot and recorded at the Legendary Harry J Recording Studio, each episode is thirty (30) minutes in length. Signature features of the series is the segment dedicated to the women posing confidently like super models and the touching of the Zizi Plant (an East African Plant) that is said to provide fortune to all who possess it.

Being Broadtail has garnered the interest and support of Sagicor Group, Brunswick, SLEEK Jamaica Media and female-owned Caribbean brands, Morgan’s Creek, Le Iona Spa and Ten/10 Events and Rentals.
