A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.  – David Brinkley

Today’s guest is Magnoliah Black, a queer, fat, black performance artist, writer, Bay Area burlesque dancer, motivational speaker and eater of food in public.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why you need to live your life as if it were phenomenal
  • How performance can be a tool to humanize your identity for others
  • How to create space for people with marginalized identities
  • How kink, embodiment, and no fucks given led to a one girl revolution

And more!
